You could check with the offices of local lawmakers or other elected... View More

If you consulted with an attorney regarding such a letter or legal action, they would likely want to see each individual review. If they're negative, it's possible that in itself is not necessarily actionable. An attorney who deals with defamation would examine if they were false and... View More
