A friend of mine has someone claiming defamation against him. No legal action has taken place but he's faked writing him a legal note. the plaintiff wrote a fake legal letter from fake legal staff from his cell phone to my friends email. The plaintiff claims that the defendant is conducting in defamation by telling his friends on facebook that he's in a homosexual relationship with an individual as well as has been engaged in a relationship with the defendant himself when allegedly none of this happened. He's claimed that he wants to take legal action if no formal apologies or given or formal retraction of statements....but how valid are these claims in general? Are there any base to these claims? What are the damages? What kind of suit is it...criminial...civial with punative damages?I rather not have any responses from Michael Habrer...all other attorneys feel free to respond.
