I think he will he broke soon, and looking to get money wherever he can get it. Suing people who slander him on Topix will solve that.

Is it slander if it's true?

Slander - Legal Dictionary - The Free Dictionary
slander n. oral defamation, in which someone tells one or more persons an untruth about another which untruth will harm the reputation of the person defamed.

Defamation—also called calumny, vilification, or traducement—is the communication of a false statement that harms the reputation of an individual, business, product, group, government, religion, or nation. Most jurisdictions allow legal action to deter various kinds of defamation and retaliate against groundless criticism.

Under common law, to constitute defamation, a claim must generally be false and have been made to someone other than the person defamed.[1] Some common law jurisdictions also distinguish between spoken defamation, called slander, and defamation in other media such as printed words or images, called libel.[2]

Similar to defamation is public disclosure of private facts, which arises where one person reveals information that is not of public concern, and the release of which would offend a reasonable person. "Unlike [with] libel, truth is not a defense for invasion of privacy."[3]. False light laws protect against statements which are not technically false but misleading.[4]

In some civil law jurisdictions, defamation is treated as a crime rather than a civil wrong.[5] The United Nations Commission on Human Rights ruled in 2012 that the criminalization of libel violates freedom of expression and is inconsistent with Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.[6]

A person who defames another may be called a "defamer", "famacide", "libeler" or "slanderer".

One's name must be "worth something" in the financial world for slander or defamation to apply. Too many people sling around these words b/c someone insulted them. I am sorry this world works so hard to tear people apart. I know how painful it can be to listen to a loved one be accused of something ugly. That being said our courts are not designed to tell us how to get along with our neighbors. That is our job as adults to mature and learn to get along with people, even the ones we don't like.

I wasn't aware that he owned the hotels. The paper said the indian man who committed suicide owned the hotels.

What ever happened to this man? Wasn't he the one managing the hotels all those people died in?

I heard he was the one that ordered his workers to exchange the pool heaters.

Is he still around? I bet he lives in Mexico now.

He'll weasel and slither out of it like all rich fooks do.

He can be blamed, but for only so much. Brent Hall should be held responsible too. And the fire department. And the police department. And planning and inspections. I guess this guy was the easiest target. It also appears that Britt forgot that this is an election year.

What about inspectors who gave warnings but never made them fix it.

Mr. Mallatere is just the tip of this iceberg. I hope the families involved will be able to carry this burden to the end. While I don't believe that everyone at fault will pay, it is certain that this wasn't just one man's mistake in judgement.
