The lawyer who has threatened Facebook with a defamation suit on behalf of boxing promoter Frank Warren has said that he may take action against internet service providers (ISPs) for US-published defamation.

Taylor Heath said that boxer Amir Khan had considered taking action but was withdrawing any intention to act. He said that no decision has been made yet on whether Warren will take further action.

Stephen Taylor Heath of law firm Lupton Fawcett is representing Warren in a dispute with Facebook about allegedly defamatory comments about him posted there.

Warren threatened to sue Facebook over the use of his name and image and allegedly defamatory comments posted on the site. Facebook has since removed some content and banned some users from posting material.
