My question involves defamation in the state of: Alabama
I brought a Hookah to a friends party at his request. someone knocked the hookah over 2 times, damaging the hookah, and burning 3 holes in the carpet. they cut the carpet out and now have 3 holes in their carpet. My "friend" called me today and said he wanted payment, I have 5$ to my name and could not possibly. im afraid his roommates will try to sew if they lose their deposit, do they have grounds? am I liable for the damage someone else caused with my hookah?
