A: That’s a very sad situation. This isn’t something likely to result in litigation, however. You need to figure out if you want to remain in a relationship with someone who would do that to you.

A: I just re-read that post and see that he’s you ex.” That’s good.

In theory, you could sue him. Anyone can file a lawsuit. No attorney is likely to represent you on a percentage basis on this and I doubt it makes financial sense to pay an attorney to sue when your actual, quantifiable damages are small. Best wishes.
