$210.00

Re-Broadcast on July 25, 2016

Brief description on what an attorney can expect to learn: Attorneys who complete this class will have the basic information necessary to assist a client who has been defamed online. Attorneys will learn to distinguish between actionable and merely offensive statements, use John Doe pleadings and discovery requests to identify and locate anonymous defamers, draft appropriate forms of judgment, and make defamatory webpages nearly disappear by having them de-indexed from search engines.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Common causes of action in defamation litigation
  • Statute of limitations and techniques to gain more time
  • A method to match an online statement to a particular Internet Protocol address and ultimately a named individual at a specific address, common defenses and objections
  • Methods to remove or conceal content from the internet
