Florida’s statute of limitations for defamation is two (2) years.

Under Florida law, the elements of a defamation claim are:

The defendant published a false statement about the plaintiff to a third party and the falsity of the statement damaged the reputation of the plaintiff. 

A plaintiff must also prove that the defendant’s fault in publishing the defamatory statement amounted to at least negligence. A defamatory attorney can help you receive the compensation you deserve. 

The elements of a defamation claim in Florida are similar to the elements discussed in the general Defamation Law section, with the following exceptions:

  • Defamation Per Se
  • Public and Private Figures
  • Criminal Libel
