Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight

I am very sorry for your situation.Can I sue the mopper personally since he is lying and causing me to loose my case?
The answer is technically yes
, although you would have to prove that he is lying
. If you feel that you can do this, you may pursue him for DEFAMATION. The elements of a defamation claim are: publication of a statement of fact that is false,
unprivileged, has a natural tendency to injure or which causes "special damage," and the defendant's fault in publishing the statement amounted to at least negligence
. See Cal. Civ. Code §§ 44, 45a, and 46
Publication can mean either written (libel) or verbal (slander) communication.
However, it may be impractical to be involved in two cases at one time.
