    Not unless they have a code of behaviour and it's part of the disciplinary process

    They can ask him to step down if they dont like his dress sense. Theres no contracts involved. Weather they should or not is a different matter.

    If you slander somebody in a text message he was lucky it was only the club committee he was dealing with not the law.

    He may have well have shouted it out if he used text messages. If the member decides to pursue legally then the text message will be brought as evidence.

    Aye. The text police will be all over it.

    This isn't an american court drama. Chat to the mentor, get the grievance out in the open, resolve it, move on.

    Are we talking about an American court drama you have a situation where a mentor cowardly sent a slanders text to a group he deserved t be shafted by the committee because clubs don't need arse holes like that.

    OP, why not give us a rough idea of the gist of the slanderous comment? Mainly because I'm very, very bored in work, but also because peoples interpretation of slanderous can be very different. Some people are so up their own arse, that anyone who says anything remotely negative to them (or about them) is being slanderous. It's often not the case, once a bit of common sense or perspective is brought to the table.
