I asked experts if Dominion Voting Systems could now sue Trump.

Backdrop: #January6thHearings revealed Trump was well informed that accusations were false.

Upshot: Makes for a powerful case of #Defamation.

Could sue for over a billion $$.

2. First Amendment living legend, Floyd Abrams:

“Dominion would have an extremely powerful libel case against him. Statements Trump made about the company were extraordinarily defamatory, provably false and enormously harmful.”

3. Professor @zahr_said (@UWSchoolofLaw):

“Holding Mr. Trump legally liable for defamation would … provide significant public and institutional censure that could herald a change in our legal system’s apparent tolerance of outright misinformation”

Defamation law changes are needed for freer speech #auslaw #defamation smh.com.au/business/workp…
This editorial seeks to cover a lot of ground. It acknowledges that there have been recent changes to defamation law as part of the first stage of reforms to the national, uniform defamation laws. It mentions the new requirement of serious harm to reputation.
It is also worth mentioning the new public interest defence, which is as yet untested in the courts. The purpose of these reforms is to exclude trivial claims and to encourage public interest journalism.

A thread on defamation and why those, including PRs who post on social media opinion as fact without evidence are risking legal action.
In-country laws, any international laws law are vital knowledge area of practicing PR.
It's not a lawyer's responsibility, it's an individual's.
I just posted on social media' or 'they were my opinions and assumptions' but without evidence is defamation.
Trying to make a fact appear to be an opinion would not protect someone from legal address or a legal case.
Defence of 'honest comment' is one of the defences that can be used. This is the right of free speech allowing a person to express an opinion, even if it is prejudiced, exaggerated or obstinate. However, it must also be based on fact.

Here is the overview of my Affidavit of my Probable Cause with my arrest for Stalking that I have with Elizabethtown Pennsylvania Police Department.
I was arrested on a false charge for stalking December 11, 2020.
Later on January 20, 2021 the Stalking charge was dropped!
That same day I was charged with two counts of harassment.
Here is my Probable Cause Affidavit to my Stalking arrest I have with the Elizabethtown Pennsylvania Police Department.
The whole affidavit is full of lies and doesn't prove that I actually stalked the woman. ImageImage
I met the woman in Pennsylvania that put the false stalking charge on me May 23rd, 2017 on Facebook.

We were friends on Facebook and I spoke to her on Twitter as well. She befriended me and sold me her book, she wrote, through a link to Amazon.
She lied here big time! Image

1/ Let's play compare and contrast:

(Left) The police attacked the victims in lock step with a violent #Nazi.

(Right) The police trumped up as many charges as possible under the direction of far right groups.

Just wait until we get to compare the #media response. #cdnPoli Image

What, if any, defamatory meaning does a 'zipper-mouth face' emoji convey? Gibson DCJ considers the issue here: caselaw.nsw.gov.au/decision/1742d… #auslaw #defamation
'Defamatory meaning and emoji
Although there has been some academic criticism of judges for referring to sources such as Wikipedia (R Smyth, “What do Trial Judges Cite?”, Evidence from the New South Wales District Court" [2018] UNSWLawJl 9; (2018) 41(1) UNSW Law Journal 211, ...'
'... the nature of modern communications makes consultation of internet dictionaries, such as Emojipedia, a necessary step for the trier of fact who seeks to determine what the ordinary reasonable Twitter reader would make of the use of these symbols.'

@kateschapira Kate Schapira: Jan 10, 2018, you tweeted: "Women I know & care about have suffered from Joseph Massey's predatory behavior, so I am sharing this letter..." Who are the women who have suffered from #JosephMassey's "predatory behavior"? Your close friend #KateColby, #MeToofraud?
@kateschapira Kate Schapira: Truth is your female poet friend, #KateColby, happily had a *consensual affair* w #JosephMassey 2014-17. After he told her husband about affair (guilty conscience) & his book was accepted by @weslpress (her "personal dream press") she unethically #MeTooed him.
@kateschapira @weslpress Kate Schapira: Jan 10, 2018, #KateColby posted on her FB that #JosephMassey is a "serial abuser" w link to website, "The Poet Joseph Massey Is An Abuser." Same day, you (Colby's female poet friend in Providence) tweeted the link to the same site? Cc @BrownUniversity @mkimarnold
