‘The law of defamation is concerned with protecting ones reputation from unjust attacks.’
The Defamation Act of 2009 provides that a defamatory statement is one which would injury ones reputation in the eyes of reasonable members of society.
We at Martin A. Harvey & Co., Solicitors have extensive experience in dealing with Circuit and High Court defamation proceedings.
It is very important to note that the time limitations with respect to defamation proceedings are shorter than other areas of law. Proceedings must be issued within 1 year of the defamatory statement.
