I have a coworker who is claiming defamation
of character against me
JA: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No, it has no been pursued by her legally, she has just written a threatening email to our boss. The thing is, I did not say what she is claiming but she has some witnesses who are claiming some gossip can specifically from me. It's all here say
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else the Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: I am a teacher. My colleague is another teacher. Yesterday, at a public event, a potential parent, whom I am friends with, was asked by a current parent at our school why his family decided not to send their daughter to our school. He told the current parent that he had heard the teacher (my colleague) is having an affair with a parent. After that, I'm not sure what happened, but it resulted in an email with my name being brought up as the one who said she is having the affair. She is claiming it has cost her 2 new kids for her class next year. I did not make this statement, nor did the person making the statement to the current patent say I did. The current parent knows I am friends with this prospective patent. Not sure how it got back to her or really what was specifically said. I did provide an email response to my boss saying I knew nothing about how this and had talked to the parent who said he did not use my name. I also have a written statement from him saying I did not make that statement. I do however have many written harassment
letters and texts from her over the course of the past school year. Administration has dismissed her as crazy and has repeatedly told me not to worry about her. This incident will not cost her a job and she is currently still under investigation for another incident. In other words, she doesn't have the best reputation. I need to know if she has a case or not and if I should get a lawyer
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
