For legal writers, the law of defamation has provided one of the fairest targets for criticism. It is an area of law which in many respects is extremely anomalous and confused. The Washington law in this respect is no different from that of other jurisdictions. But in reading over the cases it seemed that, rather than criticise or discuss the problems to any great extent, it might be helpful to those concerned with the subject to provide an outline and citations which would serve as a starting point and guide for further research. This is the purpose of this article.
