Tyson Bryson had taken a position in the news desk of the CelebrityWhispers, a Queensland based entertainment site. There was a notable entry that had askedto give a life to the home tonight. Then he asked same if or whether he was living up to hisname. So it is found that Sam Sleeve has given false information to the co celebrity namedTyson Bryson of the Celebrity Whispers.An issue of the caseThe main legal issue, in this case, is defamation which tells a situation when falseinformation is given. The common law of Defamation states that defamation is a claim that isfalse and it is made to someone except the person defamed.
