I ran for school board and one of my opponents (incumbent) went to a citizen's house & ques the man about my campaign sign on his lawn. A heated confrontation ensued and neighbors came out to break up the dispute. The man's daughter called me very upset to tell me. A police report was completed. I reported it on my campaign blog. The man filed a libel/slander suit against me. I'm now represnted & my atty sent a letter that there were no damages & to drop the case. 45+days have passed & haven't gotten a response. My atty is billing me for interrogatories that haven't yet happened and research and the bill keeps climbing and I have no resolve. The man & I both got elected and he is the pres of the BOE & just got a better job. What should I do next and what are my rights now? VERY POLITICAL!
