"Judge Robert Sack is the leading expert on the Law of Defamation. His book is, or should be at the elbow of every lawyer who practices media law.”—James C. Goodale, Debevoise & Plimpton
“[Sack on Defamation] is a wonderful book.” —Michael Gartner, former President of NBC News and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist
The new Fourth Edition of Sack of Defamation gives you the latest insight into how the law of defamation, invasion of privacy, and related torts are affected by the Internet and other electronic media, including such questions as how the “institutional press” versus non-traditional media defendants will be treated by the courts and to what extent new electronic media will have an effect on defamation litigation.
Sack on Defamation pinpoints practical legal issues vital to your clients, helping you understand when “truth” is not a defense • when insults and name-calling cross the line into defamation • when inaccurate media quotes can be libelous • when “public exposure of private facts” becomes invasion of privacy • when opinions can be deemed false and therefore actionable • when defamatory communications are privileged • and more.
Sack on Defamation offers legal, strategic, and tactical guidance for both sides, including coverage of the legal maneuverings during discovery • a comprehensive Table of Cases and a Defendant-Plaintiff Table, both keyed to relevant pages of the text • up-to-date source materials, including the texts of retraction statutes and shield laws for various states.
