Libel?? Really??

Post by Upsy Daisy on 29.04.12 14:53

How can the McCann's sue ANYONE for libel/defamation ?? If this case has never gone to trial and they have never been proven innocent, beyond any reasonable doubt, then how can they say for sure that anyone is uttering false statements damaging their reputation, unless it has been proven otherwise??

How can the courts allow this to happen in the first place, surely this just contradicts the act of libelling, as in, first of all you must be sure the person claiming that someone is bringing their good name into disrepute is in fact WRONG............only one side can realistically be telling the truth.

It's obvious I know doodly-squat about libel laws, so if anyone can shed any light then please do...........

THANKS!

Other way round in libel. You start as guilty having to prove what you wrote was correct. More to it, but that's the gist.

right, so the Mcscams do have the upper hand then, since they can say everyone is wrong about them and nobody can point blank prove they are telling the truth.
