Also, if you would like to chat on the phone, let me know and I can make that happen.
I am sorry for this dilemma.
Slander is a form of defamation. Defamation is defined as a false statement of fact that harms the reputation of the victim.
What you are describing sounds like defamation...that is, if he is lying about you, and the lies are harming your reputation, you could sue for defamation.
Now...it is good to understand that to sue for defamation you will need to hire an attorney (you can not sue in small claims court for defamation). And you can not sue for your lawyer fees. So to sue and win you would need to obtain a judgment in excess of what you had to pay the lawyer.
Your judgment would depend on how this harmed you.
SO, for example, if you can not get a job because of this, or this has otherwise harmed your reputation in the community? Perhaps worth the cost (of paying the lawyer).
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
