  1. Before I go into the whole long story (and it is long!), does anyone have any experience with defending defamation claims? My wife is being sued by our neighbour for defamation, following a statement she made on Facebook. The statement was made in anger following several years of what can only be described as torture from these people. The complainant's partner has been the main instigator of the trouble we've had and she has been prosecuted and convicted twice, her daughter once, for their behaviour against us. The complainant mostly stays quiet, but it was he who committed the ac
  2. Hello Friends, I have been working a my current firm for last 1 year 3 months at one of the top financial firms. I have to work very hard and extended hours to meet the business objectives of firm. My boss is being very unkind and dishonest with me. He basically wants to throw me out and bring in an old colleague at a lower salary. I came to know about his plan from one another colleague. Last Monday, there was a without prejudice meeting with firms solicitor where the boss started making false and flimsy allegations that my conduct has not been right in that I did not follow his ins
  3. Hi, I hope you can help me. I posted a negative review on a website of a removal company. That company is now threatening me with defamation and false accusations unless I remove the review. I instructed the website to do this via email (I have no other means of contact) and copied in the removal company contact. It states, however, on the website that it can take up to 7 business days to remove the review and, after 6 business days, the review is still there. Note I am not able to remove or edit the review myself. I explained to the removal company that I cannot remove the review and t
  4. New libel laws aimed at giving better protection to people expressing their opinions are to come into force in England and Wales. Claimants will have to show they have suffered "serious harm" before suing, under the Defamation Act 2013. The changes - coming in on 1 January - will also address "libel tourism". The government said the law would reverse the "chilling effect" current libel laws have had on freedom of expression and legitimate debate. Journalists, scientists and academics have faced unfair legal threats for fairly criticising a company, person o
  5. Hi guys, I've got a defamation claim against me. The circumstances are unusual, I didn't make the review but it was made with my account. I do not know how this occurred, my speculation is that it was the result of some sort of account breach, though the claim was started very close to a year after the review was made and I am unable to get any evidence that suggests such. I have no links to the claimant, didn't know who they were prior to the claim and did not know about the defamatory review. Due to the time between it being made and me becoming aware of it I've been able to d
  6. Hi all, Just looking for some advice on my situation. Basically I was subjected to 6 months of bullying/unreasonable treatment by a new boss (won't go in to details on that but several incidents, some witnessed, some not.) Several staff on my team including me complained to his boss, to no avail. All I got was mediation where he acted like he was the aggrieved party (surprise!) So I decided to get a job elsewhere, which I did, although I never wanted to leave. With two weeks of my notice left, I was called in to his office and berated in an aggressive and extremely abusive manner,
  7. Hi, I have become aware that Lowell/Red have wrongly been trying to contact me recently, over an out of date alleged debt dating back from almost ten years ago. They have contacted an Ex directory phone number NOT registered to me, that has no link to the alleged debt and has never been given as a contact number. It is registered to my partner. They have left numerous messages to this number which I have recorded proof. Also they have wrongly sent various emails to an email address not used by me, and again not linked in any way to this alleged debt. This email addre
  8. My p.a over the past 18 month has submitted my expenses incorrectly. In essence she has taken my receipts and submitted them multiple times as well as using the incorrect mileage allowance for my mileage expenses. I have agreed to pay back this overpayment but now is where the fun begins. It is being implied (in writing) by a representative of the company that I have done something underhand - I have told them that this is defamation unless they have documented proof to substantiate their case. They are telling me that the 'expense policy says that all expenses are my responsibi
