Q: Can you sue someone for sending emails that curse you out with abusive language in almost every other word.
Could you also sue for defamation in that email since now permanently on a public server since emails are stored forever?
Better to block them and remove them from your life.
You will have trouble finding an attorney who would file such case. No money damages. Just some irritation and frustration.
A: Block them. If they keep it up, you could call law enforcement on the non-emergency line and ask to file a criminal complaint about Harassment. One of the ways that a person can commit the crime of Harassment is to send multiple electronic communications that harass, annoy, alarm, abuse, torment, embarrass, or offend the recipient.
