Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I am in Massachusetts. WHile what you are proposing is very unusual and you may have difficulties finding an attorney to handle this without having to pay an hourly fee (which can get very expensive very fast) unless he has a lot of money that he can pay in a civil suit, you can most certainly file a claim for a civil lawsuit for intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress against him. You should contact your local county bar association and ask for a referral to a lawyer in your area who handles civil tort emotional distress claims. They should give you several names and you can go from there.
I really wish I could but I am not permitted to have contact with customers offline (I could lose my position here if I did that) -- and trust me, it has nothing to do with you and your situation and everything to do with liking my position here and not wanting to jeapordize it.
