Varied per State typically. Also, it is a very tough case to prove. Defamation, slander, libel cases are extremely difficult and not only do you have to prove it beyond any doubt but you also need to be able to prove damages!

Remember, that an unbeatable defense is truth. So if the person doing so is truthful and can prove it, it is justified.

Lastly, people are also completely entitled to state their opinions about you. So thelines get even more murky.

You can sue for the real provable damages suffered. That is, you have to provide a detailed account of your financial loss such as loss of wages, medical/psychiatric bills, etc.
You can also attempt to claim up to 3x that amount in general damages, but you have to demonstrate significant suffering such as pain and loss, not just hurt feelings.

How much financial damage did you suffer? That's a good start when figuring this out. If it's just hurt feelings, the max would be zero.

Of course, your lawyer will know a lot more about this. He should be the one you ask.

If your definition of slander is anything like 99% of the people on this website, you have absolutely no case. I'm not sure what you think "general damages" is all about.

The remedy for slander depends on the damages that you prove. If you prove no actual damages, then you get a judgment for one dollar.

different states have different laws. as a general rule, slander needs a monetary loss. Such as losing your job because someone said you have a criminal record. Same with damages.
