W.J.A. v. D.A. (067093; A-77-10)

W.J.A. v. D.A. (067093; A-77-10) 

             Presumed damages continue to play a role in New
Jersey’s defamation jurisprudence in private plaintiff
cases that do not involve matters of public concern. 
Where a plaintiff does not proffer evidence of actual
damage to reputation, the doctrine of presumed damages
permits him to survive a motion for summary judgment
and to obtain nominal damages, thus vindicating his
good name. 5-16-12
