Recently I quit my job at a local bar. I went to retrieve my things, drop off a key and collect money a bartender owes me. While I was there I also dumped out a mixture of Bloody Mary mix that was my recipe. The police were called and I receive a citation for "theft" of the mix. I was never arrested, never went to jail. Few days later a paper published an article title Bloody Mary mix lands woman in jail. Can I sue the paper? I'm currently looking for a job and this is not true!
Hmmm. You may just have a case. This is apparently false information.
It's worth talking to a local lawyer.
This answer posted on Avvo is for informational and educational purposes only. There is no attorney-client relationship created or formed and you should not rely on this as legal advice. The suggestion is made that if you wish to protect your rights, you consult with an attorney immediately.
You would need to discuss particulars with an attorney. Avvo is not exactly a proper forum for detailed discussions as it is public. You may very well have a case and you should see if an attorney could look things over and confirm. I would be able to look over your documentation and speak with you. Avvo's "Find a Lawyer" feature may be helpful as well.
