Thank you for your follow-up, Staci. I reviewed the past questions and now I understand the situation a bit more.So long as you yourself are not an officer in the LVPD, there is no concern for you in speaking with Internal Affairs. Engaging in an intimate relationship with an officer, even a married one, is not against the law. But if you yourself are an officer, and such fraternization is against the code of your department, retain counsel first before speaking with IA. Otherwise there is no need to do so.Good luck.
Staci,I truly wish I had a different answer to give you than the one you received but unless you can prove that you were intentionally infected (not accidentally), there is no cause of action. And if you allege that this was intentional, you would have the burden of proving that fact in the courts. That is a fairly high burden if you have nothing in writing or anything that would tie him directly to the STDs, other than the intimacy. He has a great defense of stating that there is no evidence he caused the harm, you could have infected him or you were infected by other partners. And as that claim is as plausible as yours, the courts would likely dismiss.I am sorry, I just have to be realistic here.
