Looking for honest opinions

Hypothetically: You do something unethical/illegal ie. Slander someone. Which date should the legal system be concerned with? Is it the date when you actually spoke the words? Or should it be the date the Subject slandered found out about it? Thoughts?

  6. Slander and libel are very difficult to prove. You have to show that this person has caused you financial harm.

    If you go in front of a judge, and end up being a plaintiff that says “they said this and it offended me” ….. the judge will give you a big, fat oh well and dismiss the case.
    Slander is thendedamarion of character …. but you have to prove it was deliberate, with the intent of sabotage or ill will. Also, it has to have had an impact on employment, finances or residency.
    In other words, a guysbex saying you’re a slut doesnt count. A classmate telling your mom you’re a spoiled brat doesnt count. Someone saying “I heard ….” doesnt count.
