Q: I filed an aka name 31 yrs ago, which I never used. Can anybody use that aka name filing to blackmail me, or extort me?
It was an aka name I filed as a joke/mistake, checking the box on the form that I intended to marry a celebrity. It was rescinded a few months later. I was harassed so severely over it, that I sued the celebrity and they filed court documents that they didn't know me, and that there was never any 'presumed or special relationship'. They also stated that they weren't responsible for 'third party' harassment. I'm 61 now. Would I owe that celebrity anything if I ever wrote a book about all the horrific harassment that happened to me after it?
A: much more info is needed.
you should contact a civil lawyer though many will charge for a consultation
William John Light agrees with this answer
A: Depends what you put in the book. Don't post your personal details here. Attorneys are not supposed to contact you first. If anyone reaches out to you based on your post, do not engage. Those attorneys are violating CA rules on solicitation of clients, and Justia rules.
