I'm not sure if this is an appropriate place to ask, but I figure someone must have come across this dilemma. If not, I'll go to a lawyer.
I don't want to get sued for libel. My book contains no false statements, but it does contain disparaging remarks about people, much of which cannot be proven. Real names and places are not used but an astute person or someone familiar with the situation would be able to figure things out.
I was wondering if I incorporated if it would protect me personally against suffering from any damages. I know laws are different in every state, but i suppose the specific question is as follows. I live in NJ and the book takes place in NY. If I formed a LLC in NJ, would I be protected?
