He sent several very nasty, mean-spirited emails over several days. Profanity, insults etc - long tirades. They were meant to cause emotional pain & hurt my feelings. He also said he was going to file a lawsuit against me, even sent me a copy of the blank form he was going to file out. I knew he had no cause but I wouldn't be surprised if he did, just for nuisance and spite. I live far away so the cost of a flight and hotel, plus time off work to defend myself is anxiety provoking enough. I'm pretty sure his goal was to puff himself up a being powerful and cause me anxiety. I did check the courthouse website every few days to make sure. He never did file....(continued...)1. Is this cyber-stalking? 2. I live 3,000 miles away. Can a case be pursued w/ just me forwarded his emails to the SF police and not my having to actually fly to the west coast? 3. Would the court even do anything about this? 4. He is a relative. The relationship became very toxic over the years due to his intense anger problems. He has an arrest history for violence. I also suspect he has psychiatrist issues. 5. My husband (his brother) had severe problems with not being able to sleep, shaking after reading the emails, and not being able to concentrate at work due to worry/stress. He pretty much "drank the koolaid" and believed everything was going to happen.
