    You can be sued for anything. The question is whether or not the claim or claims would be valid and stand a chance of success. If what you said is true about the daycare, then you have an absolute defense to a defamation claim. You would have to prove the truth of the statements. You would be wise to weigh carefully what you say and put on social media before you do so. If you have solid proof, you should be fine, but do not invite trouble! Beware of other claims as well such as tortious...

    i would ask an attorney to draft a letter for you to send to your former employer. Depending on additional facts, you should be able to persuade your former employer to provide only neutral non-damaging information to future prospective employers. good luck!

    The police are not allowed to search your home without a warrant unless you consent to them conducting the search. If they continue harassing you, I would suggest contacting a local attorney.

    Don't settle "out of court" without an attorney! They will take advantage of your son. Get a lawyer right away. It sounds like a strong case and back injuries can be more severe than you think. Call me if you need more advice!

    I am not exactly sure what you are saying here. It is clear that you are in trouble. If there is a charge pending against you, bail set and you do not show up, you may subject yourself to further prosecution for the crime of bail jumping. If no bail was set, a warrant will nonetheless be issued. If no charges have been filed against you and no warrant has been issued for your arrest, you are not necessarily committing a crime by not going down to the station to talk to the police. However,...

    Truth is an absolute defense to defamation. If he is suing you to intimidate you and shut you up, a counterclaim is certainly in order, as would be filing a new lawsuit against him for malicious prosecution if the defamation case against you is dismissed. Sounds like the "hundreds of people" should contact the DA, Attorney General's Office or at least consult with an attorney as well!

    There is no easy answer to this question and I would need more information to give you a definitive response. Generally, statements that are contained in court pleadings, a complaint, etc., are not actionable as defamation. However, if there were defamatory statements made by your manager or director in another context, on the internet for example, you may have a claim for defamation for those statements. Please be aware, there are very strict statutes of limitations for defamation. Here in...
