She used to beat her kids and I showed empathy to her oldest daughter who is grown now and she became angry; she threatened me on Facebook that she would report us to Section 8. I married last year and my husband was already on my Section 8 so she called the IRS too. She threatened us on 5/14/15 and by Monday, 5/17/15, my PG&E, cable, internet, phone was all turned off. Me thinking that I was having a bad case of luck because I made partial payments didn't think anything of it, until our grand Aunt asked if my Section 8 was legal? She defamed my sons and me all over her Facebook. Then referred to me as her mother's sister's daughter and we are the only 2 girls. I'm tired and because she is such a terrible person no one is willing to stand up to her.. HOW DO I STOP HER?
Your facts aren't clear. Is what she is claiming true? If so, you can't sue her for defamation, and you can't sue her for reporting your illegal activities. If she is falsely reporting things to the authorities, you might have the grounds for a lawsuit, but does she have any assets so you could actually collect if you won? Or would you just end up with a piece of paper saying she owes you money, with no way of actually collecting that money?
