Malicious and Negligent Statements

What do you do if somebody makes a false statement about you with the intention of causing you harm?

Malicious falsehood is different from defamation because the statement concerned may not make people think less of you.

For example, if somebody states that an actor has retired, a casting director may believe the statement and hire someone else, causing the actor financial loss.  If the actor can show that the statement was made maliciously, they may have a claim.

What do you do if somebody negligently publishes false information about you? Depending upon the circumstances, you may have a claim for negligent misstatement.
