I agree, what are your damages.
According to your facts, your lady, because of twenty minutes of anxiety over a false positive result will be "emotionally bothered" for the rest of her life. I think she is being a little too sensitive and the law does not support a recovery based solely on an extreme sensitivity. This sort of thing happens all the time. Would it have made her feel better if at first they said they suspected scarlett fever but then revised their assessment?
It would be helpful to have more facts, but in the pure sense if your son was negligent and caused damage he is liable. By way of example, if he fell and damaged a parked car he would be liable for that. The fact that the car was moving is irrelevant to the issue of liability.
As a follow up, I would argue that the private fact was published when the poster sent them to the prospective beau. They were no longer private at that point. Again, one cannot have a reasonable expectation of privacy in something one voluntarily exposes to public inspection.
Nope. You have no right to store your care in the Rite Aid lot. They were within their rights to tow it.
In the reverse, do you think it would appropriate for them to store merchandise without your permission in your home if they did not have room at the store?
I disagree somewhat with counselor Mashal.
If what he has posted to his blog are the messages you actually sent, then you have little recourse. You cannot have a reasonable expectation of privacy in something you knowingly expose to public inspection, and sending him an email is no different.
The perfect defense to slander and defamation is truth. If he puports that those messages are your words and they in fact are, there is no foul.
As far as being without your knowledge, he does...
Unfortunately I think there is little you can do.
The photos were not taken surreptitiously. You took them yourself and sent them to this guy. That pretty much kills the invasion of privacy angle. You cannot have a reasonable expectation of privacy in what you knowingly expose to the public.
Has he doctored them or done something to them so that they do not accurately reflect you? If not you aren't going to be successful in some sort of false light defamation claim. If its you, its...
