Harper Grey lawyer, Bryan Baynham, was recently interviewed by CTV Vancouver regarding a defamation case where a social media influencer was ordered to pay $200,000.00 after the court found she defamed her ex-boyfriend online.
The influencer’s large online audience made her penalty far higher than usual. “It’s like publishing a defamatory statement to the world. It’s worse than publishing it in a newspaper in many cases. It’s very serious and you better have the facts to back it up,” said Bryan in the interview.
The landmark ruling represents one of the biggest defamation cases in the province’s history.
