Factual errors 

Joan tells Nathanial that if he does anything to malign Joe's work, she will take him to court. First, any honest critique of an artist's work would be protected by the First Amendment. Second, you cannot be sued for slandering the dead. Third, since Nathanial's allegations would be perfectly true, she would have no case.
