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. Slander is a civil wrong (tort) and can be the basis for a lawsuit. Damages (payoff for worth) for slander may be limited to actual (special) damages unless there is malicious intent, since such damages are usually difficult to specify and harder to prove. Some statements such as an untrue accusation of having committed a crime, having a loathsome disease, or being unable to perform one's occupation are treated as slander per se since the harm and malice are obvious, and therefore usually result in general and even punitive damage recovery by the person harmed. Words spoken over the air on television or radio are treated as libel (written defamation) and not slander on the theory that broadcasting reaches a large audience as much if not more than printed publications.(See: defamation, fair comment)

Ya, Ya, Ya, so who runs runs the jury thing in Bridgeview? Has anypone got out of jury duty by political favor or otherwise? I'd like to know because I was told it is an honor to serve and it is a dishonor to try to get out of serving. Just want to know if anyone is getting out of doing thier civic duty with help from a politico or any other nogoodnic.
I also want to know if anyone is let go early. Is that policy or is it one persons discretion?
