I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Are you under the impression that the supervisor lied about you and the lies have harmed your reputation?
Thank youWhat you are describing, if this person lied about you, and the lies harmed your reputation?That is considered defamation.HOWEVER, there is a potential problem...the statute of limitations for defamation in IA is 2 years. That "clock" starts to "tick" from the moment of publication of the statements.It seems this happened well over 2 years ago. THough if it was never communicated to another until recently it may be you can still bring a case.
If the goal is to pursue this, you will need to hire a local attorney to bring the lawsuit
