I am the owner of a private preschool/elementary school in Southeastern Massachusetts. An angry parent has been using facebook, email, text message, and time in the hallway to spread rumors and lies about me personally as well as the school, telling parents not to enroll because I was changing it, taking their money and running, etc. I am interested in suing her for libel and/or slander because our enrollment has dramatically decreased partly as a result. I can prove this through parent emails, texts, and facebook accounts
Defamation is any type of emotional or psychological personal injury that occurs when someone intentionally harms another’s character or reputation.
Libel is the written or visual defamation of another person’s character. False statements can damage someone’s reputation, so it is a type of personal injury.
