In libel cases, every defamatory imputation is presumed to be malicious, even if it be true, if no good intention and justifiable motive for making it is shown. So, the truth may be given in evidence to the court and if it appears that the matter charged as libelous is true, and, moreover, that it was published with good motives and for justifiable ends, the defendant shall be acquitted.
This is a tall order for Ms. Solis as the defendant in the case. Maybe her good motive will be merely an innocent reporting of the incident inside the hotel. Maybe she can get witnesses from the hotel that the two guys were actually there. Of course, the hotel staff won’t give any testimony unless they want to lose their jobs. Suggestion: On 12 October, Ultra Mega Wholesale and Retail Mart had a large whole-day event at the Harbor Garden Tent, where big- name actors and singers entertained the suppliers and clients. There maybe some people – showbiz and corporate – who saw the two guys there in the coffeshop.
