Read this: http://www.keleka.net/pubs/combinedthesis.pdf for more information as to why. Other resources presented strictily for informational purposes only, are below. Corporate counsel exist for a reason, and can be quite effective at getting blood out of turnips. Just be careful everyone.

I am not sure but I don't think some of those cases would apply. You would still have to prove intent and prove that what was being written were lies. Didn't the BMW club president guy post that the Dealer's internet guy did call and say the very same thing that Dooma posted?

I am just wondering if one would be able to get a trail by jury? Do you really think a dealership would get a sympathetic jury?
