Popular ROR Defamation Question #1: Can I Sue Someone For Leaving A Terrible Review of My Business On Ripoff Report?
The most oft-asked Ripoff Report defamation question we field is:
“Can I sue someone for leaving a terrible review on my business’ Ripoff Report page?”
Unfortunately, a simple yes or no is impossible, because every online defamation lawsuit is different. But you didn’t think we’d leave you empty handed, did you? Here are a few general defamation law guidelines:
- You can successfully sue for defamation if a poster makes a false statement of fact about your business; you cannot successfully sue for defamation if the person only expresses their opinion.
- In order to win a Ripoff Report defamation lawsuit, you must be able to show that the post on ROR directly caused a decline in business. If you can show that your business declined from the date of the posting, that is is usually sufficient.
- Even if the person doesn’t post under their real name, you can still file a defamation suit against them. Go here to learn more about anonymous defamation.
- The statute of limitations for defamation ranges between 1 and 3 years. Act quickly when faced with Internet libel.
Popular Ripoff Report Defamation Question #2: How long does it take to remove disparaging content from my company’s ROR Page?
The second most asked Ripoff Report defamation question we field is:
“How long does it take to remove disparaging content from my company’s ROR page?”
We wish we could give you a definitive, boilerplate answer, but again, each case is different. In some instances, a letter from a lawyer is all it takes to get defamatory material removed from Ripoff Report. Over the years, we’ve seen situations cleared up within days. If, however, your adversary enjoys a good legal scrap, then it may take a tad longer to clear up. In those instances, though, if he or she loses, the judge may order them to pay your legal fees.
