Unless she is harassing you because of your status in a protected class (i.e., race, ethnicity, disability, etc.) or the harassment is sexual in nature, there is likely no legal recourse. If that is the case, it sounds like your best option may be to move departments.
My friends neighbors are calling my friends work trying to get her fired and the local police department told her there is nothing she can do. The neighbors are constantly starting fights with her and she feels unsafe at her home with her and her daughter. Is she supposed to just wait till it... Read more »

Unfortunately the law isn't good about this. If it's motivated by race or other bias, then contact one of the legal groups that deals with those issues to see what her options are. If it's just people being idiots , depending on the behaviors she can go for a protective order but... Read more »

It doesn't sound like anything legally actionable is there. From the brief facts, it sounds like you were accused of violating a store's private policy of no sunglasses, but defended your position by asserting that the glasses were prescription. There doesn't appear to be any damage... Read more »
I believe im still being pursued because of this by the authoritys
answered on Jan 14, 2020
When you say you are being pursued, do you mean there is a warrant for your arrest? You can check this on the UJS portal. 8 years is a long time to leave a case open unless the allegations are very serious. You should have a confidential consultation with a defense attorney. They should be able... Read more »

Best of luck to you.

He should contact the legal aid /legal services in Pittsburgh; ask for their housing group; if they say they don't handle that ask if any of their attorneys left for private practice. Call that person.

Slander is a civil action. You're thinking of harassment, which is a criminal charge.
The person receiving the harassing text messages could certainly contact the police department in Florida in the text messager's neighborhood. Will they do anything? No way to know unless you... Read more »

Truth is an absolute defense for slander/libel charges. But can he still sue you and drag your through the court system? Surely, but you would have a defense to his civil lawsuit against you.
Best of luck to you.
Is this libel if names are not used and locations are not mentioned? What defines Libel?
answered on Mar 26, 2018
Depends on the circumstances. It is not illegal but it could make it a case for libel.
My nephew is currently being held in the Wyoming County Jail on a ridiculous amount of charges. Neither him, nor my family feel as though his Public Defender is looking out for what's in his best interest, and would like to look into gaining a second opinion regarding his current legal issues.
answered on Sep 21, 2017
Most criminal defense attorneys do not do work on a pro bono basis. Many have surprisingly reasonable rates. Contact a few and see if you can find someone to work with. Alternatively, have your son sit down with his Public Defender and ask questions. A common complaint that I get from people... Read more »

He would have to show both FALSE allegations, and prove his FINANCIAL damages, and that may be very difficult.
He should at least contact an attorney in PA who handles defamation cases. Go to Super Lawyers site, and look up civil attorneys near his location, who handle slander claims.

Can I sue for defamation of character,
answered on Jun 19, 2017
Surprised he's still there. I suggest you contact an attorney who handles these things as the company may be implicated. Less defamation than invasion of privacy. If it was assault, have you captured the video and taken it to the police? Take 'em all down!
I repeatedly asked the source to delete the photo, which I never gave him permission to share, and it is still available for everyone to see.

If you wrote to him on facebook and he put it up, not much you can do. Ask the provider to take it down.
Without knowing what it is, hard to say--but I can tell you suing him will cost you lots of money and time and not get you anywhere.

The answer is two years from the date of the accident unless you are a juvenile. Then it is two years after you become 18. In a medical malpractice case the statute is two years from the time of the occurrence or two years from the time that you learned the occurrence was a result of medical... Read more »
