This millionaure from my job maliciously told my employer all of these false things about me in writing and verbally. I’m going pro se because I can’t afford a lAwyer but I have all the documents. My employer handed them over . Federal or state court ?
Probably State Court... but we need a lot more facts. Some attorney may take your case on a contingency basis (you dont pay unless you win or settle).
The above is general information only and is not legal advice. The information provided does not form an attorney-client relationship, and should not be relied upon to take or refrain from taking any action. I am not your attorney until we sign a retainer agreement.
Do you have jurisdiction over the person in New York? Depending on facts, a lawyer might take the case on a contingency basis.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been handling criminal defense and personal injury cases for over 22 years. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
Attorneys often take these types of cases on a contingency basis, but more information is needed to determine whether you can file, where you can file and more.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP FORMED
Unless you have jurisdiction over the defendant in State Court you will need to file in Federal.
