Hello

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

If you want to have criminal charges filed under the CA Penal Code, you should consider making a police report and allow the District Attorney to decide if there is enough evidence to prosecute.

Expert:  Samuel II replied 1 year ago.

What you cite is a criminal code. And that needs to go through the District Attorney's office. If you want to sue them for the deliberate and intentional tort of destroying your business, you will need to consider consulting with a local attorney to bring that civil lawsuit. But you can proceed with the criminal charges by way of the police and the DA.
