Who said the Dead can’t be sued for Defaming the Living?


"Since the start of this organization and throughout its evolution it has been visited by persons who said they had legal knowledge and had come to set the record straight. They argued there is no need for a law against defaming the deceased. Going on to explain such a law would give way to frivolous law suits, violate our First Amendment Rights, hamper writers and the dead did not need to worry about their reputations. It was further pointed out the possibility of a deceased person being sued for an act of slander committed while they were alive was highly unlikely."

"A listener on one of our CadeFlaw radio shows said the probability of a law suit against a decedent for slander happening had about the same chance as an average person affording the Hope Diamond.

Well, the Hope Diamond has just become very affordable.

Jesse Ventura file a law suit for defamation against the Estate of Chris Kyle author of American Sniper and won.
