Additionally, her employer (for profit college) has been accused of violating Virginia Board of Nursing practices. The institution is being represented, and tell my spouse “not to worry, they represent her too”…I am afraid she will be made scapegoat. Do I need an employment or defamation attorney?
You may need both, but it depends on the allegations in the complaint and if she's a named party. If not, and she simply wants to sue for the defamation, then you only need a defamation lawyer. I don't think the company's lawyer could properly represent her as well. I'm sure...Read more »
As her parent, I cannot access her grades or the County Parent Portal, based on the school's misreading of my divorce decree and hearsay information from the other parent. The parent plan contains standard information sharing for the divorce.
Perhaps, but it would probably be much more efficient, economical, and quick to explain to the school what the divorce decree provides. Or if all else fails apply to the court which issued the decree a specific order regarding the matter.

My child broke her arm at recess. Went to the nurse, was given and ice pack and sent to class. We were not notified of the injury. Once we picked her up we saw she was crying. She told us she fell at school and her arm really hurts. As soon as we saw it we could tell it was swollen. School denies... Read more »
You might have some valid claims but schools have a lot of immunity. If the school not calling you made her injuries much worse then you might have a good case for damages... but if the delay by a few hours didn't make her injuries worse then the "damages" might not be worth...Read more »

So students in my class were told by another student that they have to write a report about me. The students were told that the college staff authorized them to do so and such reports were used against me in a school hearing. So is it legal for a college administrator to authorize a student to... Read more »
I don't understand how a student could, allegedly, "force" other students to write such a report. In any event, if the report contains defamatory allegations about you, it might be possible for you to sue the author of the report, and possibly the college and the students who...Read more »
