Ellen Cronin Badeaux's answer Save it all on a flash drive. Then hire an attorney to file for a permanent injunction against harassment and to fight her protective order. After saving on a flashdrive, contact each platform and ask them to remove her postings.
Rahlita D. Thornton's answer You should consult an attorney who handles car accident cases and provide them with as much information as you have. You may also be able to retrieve the police report from the investigating police entity. If you do not know then consider contacting the police in your area. We hope that you are on the mend as a result of your accident. Good luck in your investigation.
Mark Oakley's answer There is a statutory scheme set up to specifically address medical malpractice by physicians (regular M.D.s), that would not apply to vets. These statutory provisions are largely procedural, but also address substantive issues related to the claims. However, the standards for professional malpractice, and the legal definitions and evidentiary standards are largely the same across all professions when it comes to proving malpractice (lawyers, doctors, accountants, architects, and, yes,...
Joseph D. Allen's answer It appears at first blush that the only potentially criminal action here would be the "gunning for [you]" comment- but that is susceptible to various interpretations. The rest is potentially a civil claim for defamation, but those cases are difficult and highly fact-specific. Another thing to consider is whether you could collect from the ex-employee on any judgment you might obtain. You may want to consult an attorney. You might also want to contact the BBB and complain to them about the...
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in Tennessee but your question remains open for four weeks. You could consult with an attorney in your state to evaluate the things posted, and learn if it would be cost-effective to pursue such a claim. You could also inquire with the attorney about the timeframes within which you must take action to preserve your legal rights, as defamation causes of action in general have relatively short statutes of limitations.
Thomas A. Grossman's answer Generally it is up to the Judge to respond to a Motion to Dismiss a case. You can find most of the forms by going to your computer and pulling up the local Branch of the County Court you are in. Then search around that website and you should come up with a Form for your motion. Since I know little about your case (I assume you are in a lawsuit), I can only guess. If you are going to file a motion to dismiss, be sure that you have all the paperwork you need. You will have to support it with...
Brian Smith Esq's answer I cannot say without checking with the court. You may want to contact the court so you can talk to them about this. Or you may want to consult with an attorney for help resolving this. What I can say is that, when a warrant is issued, Ohio courts will mark the case as closed until the warrant is served/resolved. They will then re-open the case.
Matthew Williams' answer You can file a lawsuit against anyone for any reason, whether you will win is a different story. Generally, defamation (slander and libel) require that you prove the things is false, and damaged your reputation costing you money.
Timur Akpinar's answer Defamation generally requires some form of communication to a third person (someone other than yourself). This can be in the form of spoken words, social media post, email, letter, article, etc. An employment law attorney might be able to provide more meaningful insight about some of the other issues.
Gregory L Abbott's answer While certainly undesirable; highly unprofessional; and a bad management practice; I know of no law that prohibits or penalizes the practice, at least absent actual damages resulting therefrom.
