I feel that Dr. P has a case in this situation. I feel he has the ability to sue for compensatory damages. I would argue that Dr. P is a public figure.

Styker is just like any other company and also faced significant challenges such as a currency debacle of 3.7 percent constant currency that was negatively impacted by a significant second-half slowdown in China and Brazil. The sales declines in China and Brazil were offset by growth in other international markets, especially the developed markets of Europe, Japan and Australia, which had strong constant currency growth in 2015 (Stryker, n.d.).
