    In general, what kind of message board was it?

    I love all GH'ers. Don't sue me for alienation of affection.
    I'll say it again...So many experts, so little expertise.

    There are probably some nervous posters here, lol. You would only need to worry if you made claims about someone that were damaging in some significant way, without any factual or legal basis. For example, if one were to claim (in writing) they knew of one or more individuals raping someone without any existing conviction or charges having being brought that could be grounds for a case.

    OK - not a lawyer here - but to claim defamation, isn't it the case that you have to post information that you know to be false, with the intent to cause harm. It's one thing to speculate -you just can't knowingly post false statements. So, the key is being able to prove that the poster both A. posted false statements, and B. knew them to be false when he posted them.

    If I'm wrong, hopefully Bob or one of the other (real) lawyers on here will set me straight. Just don't sue me. I'm counting on my tax refund to buy a new TV.

    Don't worry Dr. Don. We've got more lawyers per capita than any other country.

    This is bordering on sexual harassment.

    You don't necessarily have to prove intent. It depends whether you are talking about a private person or a public figure. When you are talking about a public figure you can pretty much say anything as long as you can provide even the tiniest reason that you believe it is true. That's partly why Fleck isn't a plaintiff in this lawsuit. It would be much more difficult for him to win than the woman who I assume is not considered a public figure.
