Resolved Question

Can someone sue you for crimen injuria if the statements you made were true?

And you have lots of witnesses who knows this and agree, and will support you in court? For instance, the things I share here with you guys about the mother, I also share with a select few I trust. But what if one of them decides to confront her with the facts, can she sue me? 64 mths ago

Best Answer

Crimen injuria, to the best of my knowledge and belief, occurs only when you swear at someone or humiliate them in public. I think that you are thinking of Defamation of Character, and this is quite different. Defamation releys on an untruth being spread, so as to harm the Character of the said person, i think that it has to be proved that the untruth was malicious. On this site, in any event, you are supposed to be anonymous, so that takes care of that.

i think she can because whether it is true or not, you are not alowed to slander a persons name in public.

Since this question was asked under the category Gambling, I'll bet you can't. The odds are against winning any litigation where the statements were not actually published and corroborated.

I always say if the truth hurts, change the truth, if you don't like what people have to say about you and it is true, no need getting angry with them, change the cause not the symptoms of the problem.

I wouldnt worry about it.

You have nothing to worry about. You are anonymous on this site and anything you told your friends was verbal which would be difficult (if not impossible) to prove. And I'm sure your mother would not want her 'behaviour' exposed to all and sundry. You are quite safe.

No. But make sure your witnesses won't "disappear" when the case do go to court and don't make contact yourself with any witnesses. Leave it to your attorney. If you can proof it, no. But, if it place that person in a "bad light", yes, they can sue you.
