She lied in court saying that we added my name to the lease. When we obtained the copy with my name on there from the leasing office. We were advised by county clerk and prosecutor to pursue legal action. Do I have a case? I don't know who to talk to.
A police report was filed, I still have evidence of electronic communication as well, and can most likely provide witnesses.

Sure you can--you can sue anyone for anything. That said, if your suit is without merit then you could be sanctioned with fines for filing a suit without merit. If you file suit which is with merit, and you are unable to prove your case then you will not recover and you would be out your filing...Read more »

You should speak with an attorney to discuss your rights regarding the unpaid wages. There are specific laws that regulate the time within which an employer must pay you. After the alleged theft issue was resolved, he may not be able to claim that as a defense. At the very least, you should...Read more »
Pain and suffering, like all elements of a claim, is shown via evidence, which comes in the form of testimony and documentation. Further, there is no calculable way to quantify pain and suffering--each case is different.

Our neighbor has been spreading lies about our dogs for years. Saying they were viscous, they have attacked them, etc. Our dog got into some trouble and their lies caused the situation to escalate quickly and resulted in our dog being taken away for 6 weeks, and going through a whole ordeal. In... Read more »
Unfortunately, no because Colorado views dogs as property so that would be like suing for defamation for someone spreading lies about your couch. But you will need representation if you have been cited for a criminal violation by animal control. If you can prove your neighbors engaged in abuse of...Read more »

It is not clear exactly where things currently stand. It sounds as if she assaulted you, was charged, went to a trial in which you failed to testify to the facts and she was found not guilty. She also obtained a restraining order against you prohibiting you from having contact with her or your...Read more »

I am so sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, there is no cause of action against anyone for securing the scene. It is up to the first responders and police to investigate and preserve all evidence that they can. It gets into a really slippery slope if the bystander may have gotten there before the...Read more »

Probably not. It was not unlawful to detain you for a short while as they looked at the video and determine you were not the suspect. Your quitting before you ever faced what you feared, i.e., a hostile work environment, probably left you without any legal claim. Even if there was some hostility...Read more »
