I'm suing a former landlady who is apparently delusional and mentally unstable. I provided materials for improvement of an apartment I rented from her and she refused to properly compensate me. I sent a demand letter, she started harassing and threatening me and then evicted me. She has an attorney, yet she improperly contacts me directly and leaves threatening voicemails and emails essentially saying that, in retaliation for my civil suit, she is going to falsely report me of various crimes. None of it is true, simply a scare tactic, yet threatening and annoying. Should I (I'm pro per) bring this to her attorney's attention? What else can I do?
First, don't erase any of the voice mails or emails. Record and transcribe the voicemails and print out all of the emails.
Second, there is nothing procedurally improper with the defendant to contact the plaintiff directly. In this case it is annoying at least, and depending on what is being threatened, potentially criminal. There is nothing wrong with notifying her attorney of the conduct and asking him to get it stopped.
If the conduct is threatening, you might want to report it to the police or seek a restraining order.
