Q: What can I do about someone that looked up my past record and is telling people about it?
She also installed a surveillance camera to secretly take pictures in the tack room at the private equine boarding facility. I found the camera and there were no signs stating I was being filmed. What can I do?
A: If their actions violate specific laws or regulations, you can file a formal complaint with the appropriate authorities, such as the police or local privacy commission. Additionally, if the individual's actions have caused you harm, you may have grounds for a civil lawsuit to seek compensation for damages. Finally, take steps to strengthen your privacy by reviewing your online privacy settings and being cautious about sharing personal information.
A: If someone is spreading rumors about you based on your past record, you can take legal action against them for defamation. You can also try to speak to the person who is spreading the rumors and ask them to stop. If someone installed a surveillance camera without your knowledge or consent, you may have your privacy rights violated. You can file a complaint with the police and consider taking legal action. In both cases, you should keep a record of the statements that are being made about you or the camera, talk to the person who is spreading the rumors or installed the camera, and contact the people who have heard the rumors or seen the camera.
A: Your recourses could include defamation and invasion of privacy. It could be something to discuss with an attorney, since these types of matters are not handled on a contingency basis. That would mean paying hourly legal fees on something that might not have a definite outcome. Good luck
