Aadhya said:

Principle: A fair comment is a defence in itself.A statement of fact can be excused only when it can be proved.

 

Facts: A went to a music show where B was singing. After the show, when a journalist asked him about B's performance, A said, "B is so stupid that I'm surprised he actually decided to be a singer! How can he be such a fool to take up singing?" B wants to sue A for his defamatory comments.

Can he succeed?

1. No, it was a fair comment made by A on B's singing.

2. No, A was just expressing his personal opinion on B's singing potential.

3. Yes, A was making a wrong statement of fact instead of a fair comment.

4.Yes, Whatever A said was not a comment on B's singing.

answer sould be C

Aadhya said:

Principle: Defamation is publication in written or in visual form some defamatory statement against anyone without any justification.

Facts: Anindhya makes a recording of his friend Rish and Yahoo saying despicable things about their classmate Shreya. Sumedha founds this audio-clip on Anindhya's phone and writes down the statements made therein and puts it on the class notice board for everyone to see.

Who is liable for defamation of Shreya?

a. Rish and Yahoo together

b. Only Anindhya

c. Only Sumedha

d. Anindhya and Sumedha together

PRINCIPLE: When any person dishonestly takes any movable property out of the possession of any other person without his/her consent, he/she is guilty of theft.

FACTS: Hashish comes to Poppy’s house and takes away a book with the intention to return it.

a.Hashish commits theft because the book has been taken without Poppy’s consent.
b.Hashish does not commit theft because he intends to return the book.
c.Hashish commits theft because he has taken a book which is a movable property.
d.Hashish commits theft because he has moved the book from Poppy’s house.

It should be 2 because there is no dishonest intention.
No, because it is a fair comment.
I think it is C coz Smedha is responsible for the publication of the defamatory statements.
ans---2

C

Principle: Unreasonable interference with a person's rights over his property/land results is nuisance.

 

Facts: Krishna has managed to survive for twenty years in his apartment without ever cleaning it but now his neighbours have become aware of the stinking smell coming from the direction of his apartment which is unbearable. They want to sue Krishna for nuisance. 

 

Can they sue Krishna? Why/ why not?
