My question involves judgment recovery in the State of: Virginia
I have been accused of internet libel against an individual, who has threatened a lawsuit. While research seems to suggest that libel/slander cases are rarely pursued and/or successfully proved by plaintiff and that truth in the statement is an absolute defense (which in this case the statement was truthful and well known in the local community), Iím obviously still interested in what happens in the unimaginable event that the individual were able to garner a judgment. If a judgment were to be awarded, could it be discharged under any circumstances, such as a bankruptcy? This is assuming that both partiesí reside in VA.
