Dear. Dr. PC, i hope the question is for filing the civil suit. Any how tanx for the decision given by u.
The civil suit for defamation can be filed where the cause of action arose or where the defendant ordinarily resides or does business. It can be filed in either of the place it depends on the decision of the plaintiff and the amount of claim made by him (pecunary jurisdiction)
