How do I sue for libel?


Answer by  patti (29325)

You must be able to prove real damages (lost income, lost opportunity, harm to reputation, harassment, etc) as a result of the libel. A suit is filed in civil court.

I suggest first hiring an attorney. Following that the burden of proof is on the plaintiff to prove that person being accused of libel purposefully committed the offense. Also it is not consider libel if the writing in question is so absurd that it can not possibly be believed. Example. Daniel enjoys being cruel to dragons.

You must be able to show that you suffered real harm-a loss of income/reputation/opportunity/status-as a result of what was written about you. It is best to see an attorney who can review your claims and determine the plausibility of such an action, which would be filed in the local court.
