What if a person clearly knows they are doing something wrong and it is clear that the individual simply does not care? In such a case, says the Chafeitz Chaim, it is permitted to publicize their behavior. A classic example is a scenario where a court summons an individual to stand on trial and he/she refuses a number of invitations. In such a case, it is permitted to publicize this information.
