Someone has posted very defamatory comments about me online, how do I proceed with legal action? 2 Answers as of August 02, 2010I have had someone who has posted VERY defamatory (and untrue) personal comments about me online. This has hurt my business and standing socially. The site will not remove the comments and I want to fully go after the person that is responsible. What steps do I take?

You sue. That is, if you can identify the person and where he is so that he can be named in the suit and served with the papers, and if you can prove the statements are false, and if you can prove actual damages under the law. If yes to all that, and if this would be in Southern California courts, and if you are serious about pursuing it, feel free to contact me to discuss.
