The victim made false claims in court as well as to the police about me. The jury signed a protection order , which is a public record and which damages my reputation. Can this be a ground for a defamation claim?

Firstly, slander is the speaking of false words or statements that injures the reputation of another. While, defamation is any communication (both written or spoken) that injures the reputation of another. Defamation may be criminal as well as civil. A wrong report to the police will also taken as criminal conduct. Again, lying in court is also a crime. You should immediately consult a defamation lawyer and initiate action.
