I had a problem with a professor at a college about 4 years ago. I tried to take matters into my own hands and did some, admittedly, stupid things. However, I did not threaten anyone, was not suspended or dismissed by the school, or otherwise charged in any way, with ANYTHING. I have since graduated. Nonetheless, I am still being harassed in certain ways, and having my privacy invaded by the school and/or persons hired by the school and/or professor. Because this does not involve disability status, education lawyers won't help me. I need to get this to stop, as I feel like I'm having a nervous breakdown. It's been 4 years and I don't have any communication with anyone there, nor do I go anywhere near the school because I have no reason to do so. I need HELP to resolve this!
Your post did not explain how you are being harassed so it's hard to direct you to any particular type of attorney as it may affect which practice areas might be indicated.
If your privacy is being invaded (unsure how) then you may want to consider a FERPA complaint if it is based on your educational record. If the other people are making false statements about you to others, then you may want to contact a local personal injury/defamation attorney about the situation.
This answer provides general advice and should not be understood as to create an attorney-client relationship between the questioner and the responding attorney.
This question has far too few details to even know what it is that is offending you so no answer can be given.
This should not be considered legal advice and is intended for educational purposes only. It does not constitute a contract for legal services between any parties. Answers are given to questions for which there may be additional facts not mentioned which might change the legal issues or consequences.
If a particular individual Is harassing you, you could file a criminal complaint, If the school hired a private investigator to find out something, as long as he did not do anything illegal, you wont really be able to do anything.
If anyone is making false statements, you would need to speak with a lawyer who handles libel and slander cases. However, most states in such cases generally require that you file a lawsuit within one year (e.g. PA and NJ).
I agree with the others; you need to re-ask your question and describe what it is that you claim to be harrasment. Without that information, no one can say what your options might be.
Your post lacks details that would be essential in directing you to the right place. However, New Jersey has a cyberharrassment statute that may be applicable to your case. If you believe that threatening communications were made for the purpose of upsetting you, you may have a viable claim against the sender and should therefore contact the police.
