I am pleased to discuss “Anatomy of an Internet Defamation Case” with Professor Jan Jacobowitz‘s Social Media & the Law class at the University of Miami Law School.
In this presentation, we briefly discuss Elonis v. United States and we analyze the claims, defenses, and potential strategies of a pending internet defamation case here in Florida.
For the briefs and court opinions in Elonis, look here.
