Sack on Defamation pinpoints practical legal issues vital to your clients, helping you understand when truth is not a defense when insults and name-calling cross the line into defamation when inaccurate media quotes can be libelous when public exposure of private facts becomes invasion of privacy when opinions can be deemed false and therefore actionable when defamatory communications are privileged and more.
