My question involves defamation in the state of: michigan and new york
My aunt has always been a nasty person to me and others and after she didn't tell me about my grandmothers death and I found out from another family member a month later, I told her off about that and several other things she said and did to me over the years. I then posted a copy of my email to my public facebook page, complete with her full name. My question is can I be sued for the following part I wrote:
“Also, my grandmother once told me a story and I don't know if this is true or not, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was. That you were drunk driving and got pulled over by a cop. Then what supposedly happened is you told this cop about your son kevin being a police officer and they didn't believe you. They then called it in and confirmed you did have a son Kevin who was a police officer and you got away scottfree. Now I don't know if this is true or not. But either it is and you are a terrible person who used your sons position to get out of something you should've gone to jail for or my grandmother lied. If so, congrats, you helped take care of a women who would make up a story like that about you. Assuming that is that you did take care of her. If she was in a nursing home I would assume they did the taking care of. And btw if this really happened you are an even worse person for actually bragging about drunk driving and getting away with it. “
What I wrote is completely true, my grandmother did tell me that many years ago. However I don't know if it was true what happened or not (but never knew my grandmother as a liar). I am wondering if since I cannot prove it if she can sue me, or if I am safe because I said I didn't know if it was true or not.
