My question involves defamation in the state of: CT
My main question is what is the validity of being sued for comments posted anonymously on an internet forum/comments section - the details have not been sent on which one it is.
The accusser John Doe states that the person who did the negative remarks (Mike) has been traced back to Mike's computer.
The sidenote is that Mike's computer is also used at the workplace where others have access to the computer. The user making the negative statements did not use their real name.
I know that the best defense to libel is the truth. John Doe has a record for sexual harassment, the internet post called John Doe a child molestor.
John Doe has to prove that comments your caused actual material damages or damaged his business or got him fired correct?
