You cannot have an agent sue for you.

If you want to sue you will need to retain a lawyer.

But your first step, or the first step of a lawyer, is to send them a letter demanding a retraction and apology and threatening a lawsuit.

Then if they won't do the retraction and apology you would sue.

Let me know if you need any further clarification.
