What Must I Prove If I Am The Plaintiff In A Defamation Case?
If you are a plaintiff in a defamation case it first depends upon whether or not you are a public figure or a private figure. If you're a public figure in a defamation case, in addition to a false statement made about you that was published to a third party you also need to prove that that statement that was made was false, and was made maliciously or recklessly. If you are a private figure in a defamation case, all you need to prove is that false statement was made about you negligently, but additionally, you still have to prove that you were damaged. Sometimes this is a very difficult burden to prove.
