I am surprised Florio did this. It basically paints Cushing as an hgh user and showed him in uniform in an NFL story. Making a false statement about someone's profession is very dangerous. In ordinary libel/slander you have to show the false statement was made with malice. Statements about a person's profession are known as libel/slander per se and malice does not have to be shown.
This is good info to know! A former direct report of mine (who use to oversee/adminster/grade the contract that I performed for facility management for his company, he was later laid off and hired by my company) is telling, or lets say I have confirmation that he has at least told one vendor that I was fired from my last job. I was not, I was laid off because my position was eliminated. Anyway, by telling folks I was fired for cause is a huge lie and could affect my chance at future employments with some of these vendor companies/contractors.
Do I have any kind of case? All I want is him to stop running his mouth. I thought about sending a nicely crafted email to his HR manager as I have a good relationship with her. Thoughts?
