I still thought this would be a good question to have answered. Can we open it up to other experts?
IDK, coupled with personal information from me or my family's posted - kind of like stalking combined with the private information being posted online to sites I go... it's generally personal referential information and doesn't specifically state our names or anything so it's difficult to get anyone to care...
what's the lawsuit claim? I get the damages; but what is my claim and what is the jurisdiction / what court would I file in?
I'm sorry, I am still contemplating your answer, and deciding action if any. I really appreciate your "action in equity" statement which taught me something. It's more a question of whether the CS is pernicious enough which it is, and then I need to understand a basic question. If it's clearly directed at me, has caused much suffering, and needs to stop; but it doesn't specifically point to personal details about myself enough for another person to clearly see it (i.e. using my name and not just indirect references to my personal life), then do I still have a claim?
(BTW - I took a few of the posts to the police, I'm not sure what they did with them, but the officer at least took them and took it seriously enough to say he'd look into it - as sometimes authorities can get to an answer quicker than a civil claim)
