The law of defamation

There is no statutory definition of defamation, a legal action which protects reputation. The common law test is 'would the words tend to lower the claimant in the estimation of right thinking members of society generally?'. The key elements of a defamation claim are:

  1. a defamatory statement was made
  2. the statement had a negative impact, ie 'lowered the claimant in the estimation of right thinking members of society'
  3. the statement refers to an identifiable legal person
  4. the statement was published
  5. there is no lawful justification or other statutory defence

The Defamation Act 2013 introduced a requirement that the statement in question causes 'serious harm'. Therefore, not all statements that are abusive or insulting will be defamatory, a claimant must prove that their reputation has been damaged as a result of the statement. For corporate claimants, there is an additional requirement to prove likely or actual serious financial loss.
