Hey Smiddy excellent point. Here is an article from 2012 which covers this exact case. The woman loses a defamation case against the elders on a technicality but the basis of the article is this woman talking to another sister about her ex's wrongdoing even showing a photo of him with another woman on holiday.
The elders disfellowship HER (!) for slander!!
Kinda blows that elder's lies into the weeds http://www.irishtimes.com/news/claim-by-jehovah-s-witness-dismissed-1.475835
