No one can knowingly communicate an untruth about another party in such a way that the party's credibility is reduced, or the party's formally or informally adjudicated eligibility for or likelihood of attainment of a right, privilege, entitlement, position, or engagement, is reduced, provided that the state is not the party at issue.   The penalty for such a communication is publication of conviction for the act, and payment for the cost of trial, if any.
