She also falsely claimed that Candy did not do what Maryann asked her to do, that Candy lied to her, and that Candy was professionally incompetent. Maryann made the statements to friends of hers. She also wrote an editorial in her college newspaper to the effect that Candy’s shop should be avoided at all costs because Candy was incompetent.

Candy threatened to sue Maryann for defamation, but Maryann told Candy that Candy could not prevail because Candy could not prove loss of income.

At the same auction, Mary saw a great deal on a used table. She bid $20 on it. No one else bid anything. Barry announced that $20 was clearly insufficient for the table, that it was worth much more than that, and that he was taking it out of the auction. Chris started bidding on a diamond ring for his girlfriend. He bid $2,000. Just as Barry was getting ready to say “Sold”, Chris looked over at his girlfriend, decided that he was not sure about marriage, and leaped up yelling, “I revoke.” Barry, however, immediately yelled “Sold.” When she got it home and broke into it, Helen discovered that the cash register actually contained $5,000. Unfortunately, Helen had a teenage son named Tad who started bragging to his friends about the family’s good fortune. Barry heard about what had happened and sued Helen for return of the $5,000.
