I’m not saying you can’t, I’m just saying I’m not aware of a way to do it. This is not legal advice you need to... Read more »

This is in the wrong forum. It is defamation not deflamation. And one big problem is that the person who did this is probably judgment proof. In other words she does not have much money. So, you would probably have to pay an attorney a lot to file a suit. What you have asked about is civil, not... Read more »
