Chapter 7. General Rules of Pleading - California Code of Civil Procedure Section 460

460.  In an action for libel or slander it is not necessary to state
in the complaint any extrinsic facts for the purpose of showing the
application to the plaintiff of the defamatory matter out of which
the cause of action arose; but it is sufficient to state, generally,
that the same was published or spoken concerning the plaintiff; and
if such allegation be controverted, the plaintiff must establish on
the trial that it was so published or spoken.
