Q: Can I sue a board member of my association for slander or libel?

A: You can sue a board member of your association for libel or slander. It is not a common thing that happens but if the board member makes such statements to you, especially at a board meeting or otherwise, which put you in a feeling of ill repute, disrepute, and humiliate you, there quite possibly could be a case of defamation against that board member. The statements have to be false and there has to be no justification for the board member to make those statements. If in fact you can meet those criteria, you do possibly have a case for defamation against your board member.
