Host of InfoWars at the center of another defamation lawsuit

When a major incident takes place, a multitude of news and media outlets in Ohio and across the nation may race to be the first to break the story. Unfortunately, some may go a bit too far and publish a story without having all the facts. Individuals who stand wrongfully accused of committing a crime under similar circumstances could suffer severely. A man has recently filed a defamation lawsuit against the host of InfoWars after he was wrongfully accused of involvement in a school shooting.

Infowars published the story online about a school shooting in which multiple individuals were seriously injured or killed. According to the lawsuit, this story included a picture of the man, accusing him of being the shooter. However, law enforcement agents have located and arrested another individual who they claim committed the act.

According to the lawsuit, the information within the story was shared or republished by a variety of news and media outlets. Although the man resides in another state and was wrongfully accused of involvement in the incident, he asserts that many were influenced by the story, and that he has been subjected to harassment and threats as a result. Those who experience harm under similar circumstances may wish to protect themselves against unnecessary harm, but they might be uncertain where to turn for assistance in the process.

Individuals who are subjected to wrongful accusations through online sources may wish to have the harmful content removed. Since this can be a complex process, a person could consider retaining the services of an attorney with experience in the area. An attorney can also provide a client in Ohio with guidance on how to protect against similar attacks in the future, and subsequently assist in pursuing restitution through a defamation claim against the party or parties deemed responsible.
