Is Your Office Vulnerable to a Defamation Lawsuit?

Debra Roth, partner at Shaw Bransford & Roth P.C., was interviewed on Federal News Radio's Federal Drive show on December 1, 2011. The interview is available here.


A Medal of Honor recipient recently accused BAE Systems of foul play. In a lawsuit, the former BAE employee accused company officials of saying he was mentally unstable and had problems drinking. As a result, he was not hired for another defense industry position.

"He's a private contractor," said Debra Roth, a partner at Shaw, Bransford and Roth. "But when you read the allegations, it seems that what happened was that he lost the opportunity to go back to this company because of security clearance issues."
