A recent post on another blog has lead me to consult a solicitor. The initial opinion is that the post is a serious libel and I have issued instructions for an action in defamation to proceed. However, we need to establish whom should be sued as the blog is owned by a limited company and we have to identify the person who posted the item.
We have to identify the assets of the person it is intended to sue as there is no point in proceeding against a 'man of straw'. Should we do so costs may never be recovered, let alone damages, which I am advised could be substantial.
Hopefully it will not come to a court case.
