    She is liable if she doesn't get rid of defamatory or potentially defamatory...???

    She has liable if she doesn't get rid of defamatory or potentially defamatory statements.

    1. Why "statements" should be added "s"?

    2.What does the phrase mean "get rid of" ?

    "She has liable..." is incorrect. Where did you find that sentence? "statements" is plural, that's why there is an "s".

    "She is liable" works. The statements could be in one document.

    Then could 'get rid of' mean 'rid the document of those statements'?

    Not a teacher.
