Tort – Defamation – Law School Letters – Nevada Divorce Case

Letters written by Nevada divorce lawyers to Washington & Lee Law School accusing a W&L law student whose wife they represented of “kidnapping, passport fraud, felony non-support of children and violation of RICO” were defamatory per se, but a jury will have to decide whether the divorce lawyers lost their “public record” privilege by substantially departing from Nevada judge’s account of the case, a Lynchburg U.S. District Court says.
Vaile v. Willick (Moon, J.) No. 6:07cv00011, July 14, 2008; USDC at Lynchburg, Va. VLW 008-3-271, 15 pp.
