I live in Maryland and she lives in Pennsylvania. The messages are pertaining to her accessing my email acct., and there is nothing I can legally because I left my email window open on her computer. I told her not to communicate with me any longer. On facebook she keeps posting she did nothing illegal etc.
She said I left my email window open on her computer in her home not mine, Can see legally do that? and read all my emails? I do not recall accessing my email acct on her computer
I have, over the past several weeks consulted by phone several attorneys in my area, all have said the same thing. Without the actual IP addresses on the ip logs I have rec'd from Microsoft during the time of the incident or incidents, as on the report from Microsoft for 34 straight days, there are NO ip addresses not even mine. I have no way of filing a suit , and I need to file a suit against her to obtain by Subpoena to Microsoft to obtain the ip addresses. ( It is as the attorneys said, "the chicken and egg case" can't do one w/o the other, and vice versa...
I have one more question and a concern of mine. Is it illegal to use "spy bubble" or software to track someone location, phone conversations and emails, and text messages etc. via Iphone and other devices of the same like?
If the software was downloaded in Pa. but attached to a cell phone in Md. then what is the situation according to the law? And reversing the 2 states.Is this just a state law or federal law?
Financially, I think I will sue this person for , invasion of privacy in a small claims suit, my question is , can she counter sue about something different than the reason for my suit?
The small claims suit has to be filed in Pa. since that is where she lives.
The problem I have is getting the ip addresses from Microsoft since during the time she accessed my email acct., there are no ip addresses showing on the log report even mine as I accessed my email everyday and should be on the report, I can not at this time afford the legal fees yet to sue in order to acquire a subpoena to get those ip addresses from Microsoft to show absolute proof.
