1 am i legible to libel? on Sun Jun 10, 2012 3:28 pm


Arresto Menor
I am a student journalist and i wrote about the unprofessionalism of the members of the student government in my column, (Like, their excessive noise playing, their tendency to create noise by slamming on the wooden partition to disturb the neighboring offices.) I didn't gave a name. And I specified that the unprofessional deeds were done not by the organization itself but by by some of its members. Am i legible for libel? It is printed and there is defamation. I am not sure if i constitute malice or if I have also committed identifiability since i did not mention any name but i mentioned the concerned organization. Is it possible for its officers to file a libel case against me for defaming the organization? or is it not liable to court since i defamed the actions of its officers and not the org itslef? is it possible for a group to file a libel against a journalist in particular?
