My husband and I have a small online scooter business. We also have a forum that we purchased from "Frank". A man "Bob" runs the forum for us. Frank doesn't like Bob and was being very negitive on the forum."Bob" with our permission has banned "Frank" for 30 days because he wouldn't stop his comments. Frank is very good at setting up websites, bloggs, forums etc (we are not ) and he is now angry at us for the banning him. So he posting pages that are false and slanderous and hurting our good name. We have proof of his threats in our emails that he intends to continue to do this. We want to know how to stop him. We are in Utah and he is in Chicago. Thanks for your help

Since this is a business entity which you are trying to protect, I suggest you invest in retaining an attorney to deal with Frank in Chicago. Perhaps a letter on legal stationery from your attorney, threatening him with legal action if he persists in defaming you, will result in his behaving himself. A letter from a local Chicago attorney may be most effective, as Frank would know that the attorney is in the area and could easily go to the courthouse to sue him.
