What is your specific question?
Thank you for the information.
Regrettably, if you filed lawsuit against this person tormenting you, you may be retaliated against for filing the lawsuit . This person may make up a reason to find your performance lacking and thus you could be terminated under false pretenses. If your company is not willing to come to your defense, I am afraid that you have very limited option: either stay and try to find a way to work with this person or quit and then file lawsuit against the person and the company for Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress. However, in order to prevail on a claim of Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, you need to show that (1) your supervisor acted intentionally or recklessly; (2) that your supervisor's actions were extreme and outrageous;(3) that supervisor's actions were the cause (4) of your severe emotional distress, which would be evidenced by you going to doctors for medical treatment or seeking therapy. If you cannot prove all the four factors above, you would not prevail in your lawsuit for Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress.
