Elements of an Online Defamation Claim
Defamation laws vary from state to state, but generally a person must prove that a statement was defamatory to make a claim.
All of the following must be established by a person who brings a defamation lawsuit against another:
The statement was published by the defendant, meaning it was distributed to at least one person other than the plaintiff.
The statement provides enough information that the plaintiff is identifiable.
The statement harmed the plaintiff’s reputation in some way.
In addition, the plaintiff must be able to prove that the defendant was negligent in some way, either in doing something he or she should not have done or failing to do something he or she should have. If the plaintiff is a private figure, only negligence must be proven. If the plaintiff is a public figure, such as a government official, he or she also must prove actual malice, which is a reckless disregard for the truth of the published statement. Finally, the allegation made about the plaintiff must be false.
Most states also recognize that certain statements are defamatory per se, and therefore, no proof is needed. Some such examples include:
allegations that harm a person’s trade, profession, or professional standing;
allegations that a person is infected with a sexually transmitted disease;
allegations that an unmarried person is unchaste; or
allegations of criminal activity.
Defenses of Online Defamation
There are several defense arguments that typically favor the defendant in a defamation claim.
The statement is true. Truth is an absolute defense to a defamation claim. Even if a person has suffered some amount of harm due to the publication of such statements, damages cannot be collected if the statements are true.
The statement is false, but it is expressed as an opinion. If the statement is false but expressed as an opinion, the defendant may have a viable defense against a defamation claim. There are two exceptions to this defense.
If a statement is made as an opinion or a joke but is taken seriously by a substantial minority or is deemed likely to be taken seriously by a reasonable person, then the plaintiff’s defamation claim may be successful.
The statement if false, but its expression has limited reach. If the statement is false but expressed in a way that would typically only reach the plaintiff, the defendant may have a defense against a defamation claim.
If, however, the statement is published in a way that would ordinarily reach others, such as publishing the statement in an online newsletter or posting it on a bulletin board on the Internet, then the plaintiff’s defamation claim may be successful.
The statement is privileged. A statement is considered privileged communication if it is expressed during an interaction that is recognized by law as a private and protected. As an example, a person that makes a defamatory statement in a court of law cannot be charged with defamation. Public officials making statements about other public officials in the process of performing official duties also are protected. In addition, there is some protection for a reporter who relies on a public document or public official to report information that turns out to be incorrect.
If a defamatory statement is not tied to any public document or public official though, republishing someone else’s defamatory communication is not a defense, even if properly attributed.
The statute of limitations has expired. If the statute of limitations has expired on a defamation claim, the plaintiff has no case. The length of time may vary from state to state, but generally the statute of limitations begins with the first date of publication.
Damages for Online Defamation
A plaintiff bringing a defamation claim may be awarded monetary damages pertaining to loss of job, loss of reputation, humiliation, or mental anguish. In order to do so, it must be proven that these losses resulted from the defamatory statement.
Lower monetary damages may be awarded if it can be proven that the plaintiff had a poor reputation before the alleged defamatory statements were made. A court also may order a retraction of the statement. Rules vary from state to state.
