Defamation Case - law34-cases


1. a 1985 case - Kansas Appellate courts


2. Facts of the case - The employee alleged that several managers of the employer maliciously communicated defamatory remarks about him between themselves while acting within the scope of their employment. The employer filed a motion to dismiss on the grounds that intracorporate communications did not constitute publication. The trial court sustained the motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim upon which relief might be granted. On appeal, the court held that interoffice communications between supervisory employees of a corporation, acting within the scope and course of their employment, regarding the work of another employee of the corporation, constituted publication to a third person sufficient for a defamation action.


3. Give the complete case citation - i.e. Name of parties, volume number, name of case reporter, page number (date case decided) 


4. State the name of the party who won the case - i.e. the actual name - not "plaintiff"


5. Give the Court rule (in your own words) - use the "key legal words" used by the court in deciding the case - or the key "case precedent" - if it used an earlier case in deciding this case


6. Give the reasoning or rationale of the court used in resolving the case (in your own words)

Good luck. Prof J.
