My question involves defamation in the state of:CA
This is in regards to the link provided above. I'm member 'blinkwatt' and the other party is identified in the post.
The libel occurs here;
I shipped the item via UPS insured. 2 weeks later he tells me that there's a
small scratch on the lens and demands a refund.
I contacted him the day of receiving the damaged product.
Within 24 hours he had made threats and insulted me personally.
The only treat I made was I would move forward with Paypal within 24 hours if I did not hear from him,I never insulted him.
He filed a paypal dispute. I decided to let PayPal decide the outcome of this case because this user was so unwilling to cooperate civilly.
I have proof I was wililng to cooperate with him,I can provide emails with headers.
Is this grounds for libel that can be upheld in small claims? Would I have to file in CA or TX,where the user resides?
I used to be a very active member of the forum,I used to go to events all the time,heck I even crashed my Boxster at a meet a year ago,so a lot of people know who I am on the forum. I feel like this has just crushed any motivation to be involved with 6speedonline anymore.
