Do I have any recourse for a potential libel case? 2 Answers as of January 17, 2011I have a competitor in another state that is telling customers who are contacting him regarding a 'price match' guarantee he has just announced, that my business is not a legitimate business here in the State of California.
He stated to several people via emails (which have been forwarded to me by surprised customers) that because I run my business from home, and my business is registered here in the State.
We have been registered with the County since 2006, a fact that is easy to search online.
My worry is that I have possibly been affected financially by him doing so. Would a cease and desist letter from an attorney be my best initial step in having him stop this.
