Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
You have to understand that, in this country, there is a difference between what is okay and what is legal. Not all things that are inappropriate are necessarily illegal.There are numerous things which, I agree, are totally not okay. They are rude, improper and immature. But most of them are not illegal.In this situation, that comment is not illegal. In our country, unlike where you are from, there is no lawsuit for verbal insults. A verbal threat is one thing and could be the basis for a lawsuit, but on these facts there is no lawsuit. If I could tell you that you could sue, I certainly would. I have no motivation other than trying to give you the answer that you would like to hear, but I can't here because there is no lawsuit that you can bring on those facts.Even if he meant to insult you, and I believe he did, it's just not the basis for a lawsuit in the U.S. That is, it seems, one major difference between the legal systems.
