I am very glad you asked. Yes, I do have an opinion. You are a fool to fight wearing seat belts. I hope you do not kill any of your friends along with yourself in pursuance of this Dilettante's crusade. You are also the very first person I ever encountered who elevated being unsafe to an art form.
Trashing people by abusing the legal system at taxpayer's expense has become something of a favorite sport in some circles, particularly accusations of child abuse. I just finished writing an article about just that.
But here is your problem in trying to do what you wish. Number one: does she have any money to take if you DID wind a lawsuit against her? Number Two: Did you know that filing such a lawsuit will only get her an even bigger stage to repeat the same lies and embellish on...
Usually this means that the prosecutor, the defense attorney and the judge meet in the judge's chambers to discuss your case and see if a deal can be made to avoid a trial. if not, the case usually goes to a jury trial. The defendant is not invited to this conference, often a source of frustration to the accused, but actually your lawyer can do a better job for you with you NOT there. Emotions get in the way. I'd sure be upset if I were being prosecuted for a felony. your lawyer will report the...
Ah, but what if the zombie is ROB ZOMBIE? Huh? He's alive. And as the attorney for the executor for the estates of all the Zombie family's dearly departed I have to advise the poster and all the accomplice attorneys who responded that I am filing a wrongful un-death action naming each of them as responsible (irresponsible?) parties. We have also pleaded a cause of action for intentional infliction of emotional decease.
Our initial settlement demand is two hundred forty thousand, seven...
You don't provide much information, but I'll make some assumptions and see if the answer helps. The type of crime you were convicted of may be important. If it was a drug case long ago, the Real Estate Commission might not care much. If it was embezzlement of trust funds, they'll care a lot. By "expungement", I assume you mean that you got relief under Calif. Penal Code Section 1203.4.
This type of "expungement" will not help you much in this situation. You still have to disclose the...
Your landlord is soooo far out of line, you ought to consult an experienced landlord tenant attorney, because I don't think the harassment will stop at this. I am not a tenant attorney, but I did a quick search on line and found this resource, which you might try calling and/or going to see them.:

Actually, getting a factual innocence petition granted under your facts might be comparatively easy. I do a lot of them. It is easier if your ex has cooled off and regrets the false report. If he will support your petition, you are likely to win if it is done by an experienced lawyer. You can learn more about Petitions for Factual innocence (PFI) on my website:
Or you can go here for results of actual cases I have had:
I don't want to shock Mr. Karman, but I had the experience 20 years ago where a judge apparently had his reporter edit out key information in a court hearing. I had to threaten to subpoena the reporter's original notes and move against his license. Upon which, he immediately sent a corrected transcript with the critical information included. So I do not assume that just because something is rare, that it is impossible.
I am assuming that what this inquiry is about is that the judge had a...
Here is some free advice. Let go. It's not your problem. Did you want to split from him or tie yourself to him for years and years in litigation? And no, the "real question" is not whether he could win a lawsuit against you. It's whether you want the expense of defending one.
I have litigated a couple of domestic violence cases in Santa Clara County, and yes, they do make a lot of noise about how it is not up to the victim to drop the charges and they will convict you no matter what, and they will force her to testify, (blah, blah, blah).
The truth however, is that with an uncooperative witness and good representation, the D.A. will often back down and dismiss, but they'll make you work for it and it takes expert guidance.
Step #1: It does not help...
