According to Milkovich, 497 U.S. 1, 20; 110 S.Ct. 2695, 111 L.Ed.2d 1 (1990):
The first Amendment protects statement on matters of public concern that are not provably false.
BUT the legal standard the ARDC is using in my complaint is: the (false) statements must have been made knowing they were false, or with a reckless disregard as to whether or or not they were true or false.
That’s a fairly amazing standard concerning the fact that the missing gold, the antics of the GAL’s and all the statements made in my ARDC complaint against me have been verified over and over by GJS and her family as being true and accurate. Not just one family member, but several knew about the gold coins not being inventoried, several or most know about the cash in the mattress uninventoried.
But what have the GAL’s told the court over and over? These were figments of GJS’s imagination.
After the defendant brings up the defense of “substantial truth” to the statements, then the burden shifts to the plaintiff to show the statements are false.
This has not been done in the Sykes case, the Tyler case, the Wyman case, etc.
