Individuals and businesses increasingly rely on the Internet for information––and for
expression. If you have been wrongly accused of defamation resulting from a blog post, social
media post, forum comment, or customer review on a website, you may need a lawyer who
specializes in Internet defamation legal matters to understand what it will take and what it will
cost to defend your case.
At the Law Office of Ryan T. Darby, we represent individuals and businesses who have been
accused of making defamatory statements and have been threatened with litigation or have
been sued as a result of things they have said, written, or otherwise communicated.
Although cases involving defamation over the Internet have many similarities to cases involving
defamation in other mediums, the Internet presents a host of unique complications. There are
a number of legal defenses to defamation lawsuits, and the state of California has anti-SLAPP
statutes that provide protection against unjust defamation claims.
Internet defamation cases can be challenging to defend and a strong legal defense attorney to
fight unforgiving defamation claims is important. By calling The Law Office of Ryan Darby, you
can have an experienced advocate on your side. Successfully defending an Internet defamation
case requires knowledge of the law of Internet defamation, as well as an understanding of how
the Internet works as a communications medium.
In order to successfully prove a defamation case in California, the plaintiff must prove that the
defendant made an unprivileged and injurious statement of fact about the plaintiff and
communicated it to a third party. This holds true in Internet defamation cases.
The Law Office of Ryan T. Darby offers defense representation to individuals who have been
threatened with or are involved in lawsuits related to a variety of defamation cases. We can
help you defend against the allegations and may be able to pursue an anti-SLAPP motion to
quickly dismiss the lawsuit and require the plaintiff to pay all your costs and attorney fees.
