Sorry, dlearl476, but you are incorrect regarding defamation, which you allude to above. The key element of the tort of defamation, either libel, which is written, or slander, which is spoken, is a false statement. Truth is called the perfect defense to defamation. In addition, a defamation case is extremely costly to mount, and no experienced litigator would take such a case on a contingency basis, since damages would be limited, due to the necessity of proving actual harm. That's why the only defamation cases that go forward are celebrities or otherwise famous individuals, who can bankroll the costs and can prove that harm to their reputation cost them millions in lost income, etc.
