Defamation is a false statement published to a third party that damages another person’s reputation. “Publication” can be written or spoken.  A spoken defamatory statement is called slander. A written defamatory statement is called libel.  The term “defamation” is generally used to describe both libel and slander.

Defamation can cause incalculable damage to a person or entity (such as a business), ranging from humiliation and other emotional distress to loss of income or even loss of a career.
