Annual Review Question

Charlotte, NC

#1 Jan 28, 2014
I received my annual review. My new boss (he started midyear), gave me the worst review of my career. I can defend myself against most of it as we are allowed to place comments at the end of the review. However, the review contains a lie that another co-worker told my boss. He repeats it at several times during the written review. He included it before even asking me for my side.
I asked for the information to be removed. For one, it's not true. Secondly, even if he doesn't believe me (which he doesn't), the situation is based on a conversation between two people. So, to me anyway, the fair thing to do would be to remove it.
Now, it is time for me to sign the review. However, if I sign it, am I confirming that the lie is true? Do I have any recourse?
