Please tell me what you mean ?
The boyfriend told the school or instructor not to allow the child to train there?
The ex told the owner that he had a conflict with my child and him taking lessons at the same place. I have a string of emails proving this.
I am sorry to hear about this matter
However, as you are probably aware there are no laws that says a private school has to accept anyone person
If you can prove that the fact that your daughter is not allowed to train there will cost her a career in music because there is no other place that will produce a success then you can bring a lawsuit against the ex boyfriend.
Other than that, unfortunately, there is nothing else.
The school has a right to not accept a person
Now if they get federal funding in anyway and you can show that they did not want your daughter because of her race, religion, age, gender then you could bring a federal lawsuit for discrimination against the school
It is not a school. It is a music that offers music lessons.
Then you would not be able to sue "the school" because obviously an individual teacher is not getting federal funds
There is no mandate that anyone has to teach another- unless federally funded or a public school
And if you can show that she is damaged and will not be able to be an accomplished musician as she grows because the ex stopped this particular training then you can sue the ex boyfriend.
Emotional distress caused by he harassing my daughter and perhaps slander. I want to sue him in criminal or civil court. what is my legal standing?
You will need to sue him in Civil Court fo rthe emotional distress caused by him to your daughter and you
And so yes, you havve standing to file such a lawsuit.
If you also want to file criminal harassment, then you will need to call the police
yes, how do I sue the ex boyfriend for what he did to my daughter and saying stuff to Mad Music which in turn not allowed her to take music lession at the store like a normal kid.
This will need to be done in the Superior Court and so that means there are no forms available and the Complaint has to be done by scratch and drafted.
Now, if you want to sue in small claims court your amount is limited to $5000 but the are forms available via the Clerks Office and an easier process then trying to sue in Superior Court. Small claims can be done without the assistance of a local attorney. And so go to the clerk of the court and get those forms
There is no Superior Court here. I am a FL Reg. Paralegal and have worked in legal aid here in St. Pete., Fl since 2005. I am also the Pro Bono Coordinator at Community Law Program. In fact, I used to have a Small Claims Legal Clinic and understand the Pro Se forms. Therefore, am I able to use Small Claims court for a civil Tort? In addition, could I add his mother to the suit for coming into my office while I was teaching my divorce forms class; in front of clients and then she treatened to blackmail me. This is another emotional distress.
