Depending on whether your State has, and if so to what extent, a "Right To Privacy" law or statute, may impact on their use of your photo, especially since it can be presumed not being done as being "newsworthy" (to the public at large). Whether their "lies" are actual false statements of fact as compared to opinion, and if in fact a false statement of fact about you - what they are and how much they would impact you from a "damages" issue perspective. However, as these matters are always sensitive and highly personal, you want to consult in person with an attorney in your area experienced in such matters. Good luck.
