You do not need to look too hard on various social media websites to see people trumpeting the power of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, but people need to be aware that the First Amendment does not have limitless power. When a person says something that actually causes damage or harm to a business, then a company may have grounds to pursue a defamation, slander, or libel claim.

In general, defamation relates to people making untrue statements that cause injury to the reputation of another party. Defamation typically includes slander and libel.

Slander, Defamation, Libel Actions in New York

Libel customarily involves a person defaming another party through some kind of writing, such as a newspaper article, blog post, or other writings. Slander relates to making false oral statements about another party’s character or professional standing.

Defamation broadly applies to false statements people make about third parties, and the elements of a defamation claim will be a person making an oral or written defamatory statement, the statement being about a plaintiff, the statement being published without the privilege or authorization of the defendant, and the statement causing injury.

Damages customarily need to be specified in these cases. Defamation per se relates to statements that are damaging that reputational harm is presumed, and common examples include statements claiming a plaintiff committed a serious crime or statements injuring another party in their trade, business, or profession.

Four Star Stage Lighting, Inc. v. Merrick, 56 A.D.2d 767 (N.Y. App. Div. 1977) was an Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York case in which the court expanded the types of defamatory statements that could injure another party in their business or profession. Any statements imputing any kind of fraud, dishonesty, misconduct, incapacity, unfitness, or want of any necessary qualifications may be presumed to injure another’s professional reputation.
