PBO not giving me documents to give to employers. contacting my supervisors and somehow he gets me fired from my employment
You raise some heavy allegations, and the primary question is one that arises in all court cases: can it be proven? If someone in fact lied in probation revocation documents submitted to the court, there could be a whole range of remedies, including possible criminal charges for the person who did so. As with all cases, the issue is proof. Other than your word, what evidence would you be able to present that the PO knowingly lied in the revocation petition? If you have the evidence, you may not only have a case, but also a likely defense to the violation. If all you have is your word, you're not likely to get far in a battle of credibility against your PO. Either way, if you have a pending violation, your freedom is in jeopardy and your possible civil remedies are the least of your worries. You need to speak to a local criminal defense attorney ASAP.

You should talk to your criminal defense attorney. Generally, an adminsitrative person mishandling their job isn't cause for a lawsuit.
Speak with your lawyer, but you'll get nowhere fast suing the probation department.

In all honesty, you can sue nearly anyone you choose to sue. Unfortunately, the caveat comes into play regarding the reason you are suing someone. This is the problem with your case. Your lawsuit would have to be an abuse of power lawsuit, normally brought in the federal court system. It is both time consuming and expensive. While we all may suspect someone of untruth at one time or another, PROVING it is a challenge altogether. Your chance of success in this matter is very minimal, added with the fact that if there is a remaining probationary time, you may be facing an uphill battle in that area as well. I would advise just keep your head down, and do everything you can to get through the probation period with as little of ruckus as possible.
You can sue anybody for almost anyting, it doesn't mean you will win. I do not think your case will generate much interest from attorneys.
