Reckless Disregard Definition

An act of proceeding to do something with a conscious awareness of danger, while ignoring any potential consequences of so doing. Reckless disregard, while not necessarily suggesting an intent to cause harm, is a harsher condition than ordinary negligence. Proving a defendant’s “reckless disregard for the truth” is the standard for success of a plaintiff in a suit for libel.
