Use this cease & desist letter in case of defamation of character; libel, and slander. The cease and desist threatens a civil lawsuit if the recipient continues the undesired activity.
It is not unusual for attorneys to receive inquiries about defamation actions from people who are in conflicts with neighbors or other members of their communities, and have become the subjects of vicious lies. The area of law most implicated by that type of conduct is "defamation of character", a cause of action which is generally defined to include libel and slander.
Generally speaking, defamation is the issuance of a false statement about another person, which causes that person to suffer harm. Slander involves the making of defamatory statements by a transitory (non-fixed) representation, usually an oral (spoken) representation. Libel involves the making of defamatory statements in a printed or fixed medium, such as a magazine or newspaper.
This is a standard notice requesting a cease & desist action. It can be modified for a host of other purposes as well.
