Falsity: Not a Minor Inaccuracy!?!?

Falsity and the “Minor Inaccuracy” Issue

“... Minor inaccuracies do not amount to falsity provided that the substance or gist of the statement is justified. See id. Because the 1996 reporting was substantially correct in that it was only slightly inaccurate, the Court will dismiss Spencer's claim relating to this report. The second potential instance of defamation occurred in connection with the May 1998 credit report. The information in this report was "false" in the sense that the debt was stale. Therefore, Spencer has carried her burden of proving the falsity of the claim. See Jacron Sales Co. v. Sindorf, 276 Md. 580, 597, 350 A.2d 688, 698 (1976).” Kerry L. Spencer v. Henderson-Webb, Inc., Robert L. Kilberg, Zimlin & Kilberg, Rupp & Associates, Inc., and Frances Flores, Civil No. Y-98-3649 [U.S.D.C. Md. 12/99].
