Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Just another quick question since this was over the internet.. I'm in NM, the person I wrote was in Illinois and the person who the post was sent to is in Florida who is threatening to sue for slander is in Florida.. IT doesn't sound like she could have a case.. since I stated the truth in the email.. the only negative I said was my opinion that the person should get professional help and quoted her sister that she was the biggest con artist in the world.. which she did to my mother.. and she should be in a professional facility.. is any of this meaningful.. if she trys to take any aciton.. she also said in her email.. which I could tell she had been drinking states she has been wanting to sue me... for what?? Walking away from a toxic human being... So from state to state.. I would think she doesn't have a leg to stand on ??? Plus, she has no money and I wouldn't think a lawyer would take something like this on retainer from this person??
