I am a police officer and was accused of DV on an ex-girlfriend. She fabricated the incident which I had evidence to exonerate me. As a result of the alleged DV a TRO was made so I was required to turn in my firearm and could not work. I lost 3 weeks of pay as well as my attorney fees and my reputation at work even though the DV was fabricated and the DA did not file on me. Plus the IA investigation that was a result of the alleged DV. Would I have a good cause for a defamation/slander suit? How would I figure out punitive damages if so?
