First, this is not "libel & slander", unless you post in the right category the attorneys that could help you won't see it and no one will answer your question. Normally a person 18 can live independently, but you may have other disabilities that would prevent that. I suggest...Read more »
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 »

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 »

My present husband was erroneously added to an Abstract of Judgment against me from my ex husband. Now his sole and separate property which he purchased with inherited funds has a cloud on it's title. The attorney for my ex husband has continuously filed and recorded documents with no legal basis.

It just gives the "victim" of the extortion the right to file a lawsuit against you,...Read more »
