You seem to have a very strong case of Slander by this other person. If he is lying about you to everyone he knows, he may have an ulterior motive and that may be to force you to give up your patent work or exit your business altogether. The fact that you are about to do so, makes me think he might succeed. You need to hire an attorney that specialized in defamation actions and have him advice you about your next move. Do not give up your dream, you have worked hard to get your patents approved. Without more information regarding your relationship with this other slanderous person, I cannot advice you as to your next move, but if he was my employee. I would consider terminating him. If he was a partner, I would offer to buy him out or just dissolving the partnership. If he is an investor, offer to buy his shares and or oust him from the Corporation, if he is disparaging your corporation's goodwill and reputation. You may need to have an employment lawyer and or a business attorney to do either action. Do not let that jerk ruin your life's pursuit. Sorry about your issue with your son. I could recommend a First Amendment Lawyer for you out of Sacramento, he is not cheap. but might be just what you need at this time. Best of luck and remember, success is the best revenge!!!
