Can I be sued for posting a rating?

Modified on Tue, 12 Mar at 2:36 PM

Yes, it is possible. It is also possible for you to be sued when NOT posting a rating; in the U.S., almost anyone can be sued for anything, particularly if the plaintiff is willing to give false testimony. If you do libel someone, it may be possible to identify you using a Doe subpoena. However, each state has a statute of limitations on defamation that varies between 1 and 3 years. Once your rating is old enough, you may no longer have liability, but check with a lawyer.
