The law relating to libel in United States jurisprudence is largely the creation of common law. The law concerning defamation of character has the same general basis of all law – that human beings interact with one another, and that laws exist as codes of conduct in social interactions. Laws concerning defamation are designed to protect reputations against derogatory falsehoods. Using an actual case, this book explores how law relating to libel and slander has evolved in recent years to its current status.
