Wait! No! Don’t hit delete yet…

Have you ever defamed somebody on Facebook? I have just learned an important piece of information about what to do when you receive the sternly-worded demand letter from the defamed person’s attorney.

When I get defamation cases my clients tend to be the libelees, individuals on the receiving end of libellous statements, but if I ever end up representing a libeler I will be grateful for having read this short article by Jeremy Byellin, an attorney who blogs for Thomson Reuters. I recommend clicking the link and taking a look.

Bottom line: Before you delete the offending matter, save it somehow. Otherwise if the case goes to trial, your decision to delete could actually work against you.
