A fellow student falsely accused me of sexual assault to the university judicial office. The accuser can't offer any proof, evidence and details of this accusation.
I have to pay lawyers to defend this accusation. Since this is outrageously baseless and malicious, can I sue for damages and punitive damages?
More importantly, can I find a lawyer who is willing to represent on a contingency fee basis?
