I was fired from a condominium office position for political reasons when a new Board of Directors was voted in. The new President stated to witnesses that he fired me because he could not fire my friend (who still sits on the Board) who he dislikes intensely,he fired me. He had every legal right to fire me so even though it was unfair, I accepted it. However, he stated in an open meeting of the Board, when questioned as to the reason I was fired, that the reason was that I called attorneys on Board business matters without being authorized to do this. This is a lie (which I can prove). I do not feel he should be able to freely state this in posted Minutes for all to see. I responded to the Minutes that I would like my rebuttal letter posted also or I would take legal action. This he refused to do. Do I have character defamation case? I live in Florida.
