Q: Can I sue to recover for damages and monetary funds from a Male withNarcissistic Personality Disorder
This male is an ex boyfriend who manipulated and used my past domestic issues to coerce me into giving him money and purchasing expensive items for him. We split up 3 months ago and recently I was diagnosed with am aneurysm.
A: You can sue Santa Clause but it's no use unless the person you sued is able to pay if you win. But suppose he is able to pay... I'm not sure what the cause of action would be. You are considering suing someone with a mental disorder for the way they behave BECAUSE of their mental disorder? Anyway, to pull this off you would be wise to find a plaintiff's lawyer like those personal injury guys who sue insurance companies. I'm not sure they would be interested in filing against an individual unless your ex has a small fortune, but I suppose it couldn't hurt to ask.
