Members should use caution and good judgment when posting cases for review by the HelpMeSue.com community. Members could be held legally responsible for damages to a person's or entity's reputation if a court were to find that the post constitutes libel or defamation. Under federal law (the Communications Decency Act), because HelpMeSue.com does not censor posts or investigate them for accuracy, HelpMeSue.com is not legally responsible for the posts that members post, even if those remarks are defamatory. However, this law does not protect the person who writes the post from responsibility for it.
