    I know that it is not permitted for one person to sue for defamation on behalf of another individual because a reputation is a private and individual matter but this question came up in my UGA law class and I am curious to know what you think:
    Can an individual sue for defamation based on what is said about their alias? Example: Miley Cirus sues for defamation on behalf of Hannah Montanna or Sacha Baron sues for published material concerning Borat…etc when it is clear to the public that the alias represents some person?
