Can you sue for someone making a statement, maybe. One, you'll have to corroborate that the statement was made and that it was false. Someone can say true things about you and that's okay in almost every situation. But you'll also need to show damages, assuming that truth isn't the defense to the case, and it's unclear what your damages will be.
Please note, my answers to questions do NOT create an attorney/client relationship. Only after a written agreement is entered into between the parties is an attorney/client relationship created. Additionally, the responses posted here are done so on limited information and should not be fully relied upon without an in person consultation where the entire case is reviewed and discussed in detail.
If you did not pay all your tuition, why do you think it was because of a statement you made?
This response is only general information and is not legal advice. It does not form an attorney-client relationship and should not be relied upon to take or refrain from taking any action. You should seek a qualified attorney before taking any action related to your inquiry.
