A disgruntled ex-employee has been Facebook messaging & IMing my clients and telling them lies. He's chatting with them on Facebook, and they are saved as "messages." Is this libel or slander?
He is telling everyone that we bring prostitutes to the business after-hours. Obviously this is not true. We cannot prove that he is wrong, because how can you prove that? You can't just have cameras follow us around all the time to show it's not true.
I read that you have to prove that it's wrong to sue him for libel/slander.
Can he still be sued for libel/slander for telling people that, even though we can't prove that it's not true?
Can he be sued for not being able to prove that it IS true?
