Slander charge

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: Canada
State: Nova Scotia

I am being charged with slander which I don't believe happened. All info to the other party was third hand information. Do I have a leg to stand on?

Answer

Yes--they will have to prove it and that sounds as if it will be hard to do based on what you say here.
