We've been in a civil suit brought upon us by a neighbor
. We are defendants, pro se. We are almost to trial. Long story short, they've taken zoomed, invasive photos into our yard for going on 4 years, and have gotten an injunction to have our yard wiped clean.
My husband records the progress he makes via photos and video since they claim nothing is being done. A few evenings ago, both the husband and wife (plaintiffs) were getting out of their pool and saw my spouse with his camera and assumed he was taping them and both shouted, "Your f**ker, turn that f**king camera off you f**king child raper, you want to rape my child don't ya?" They both yelled it a couple times as loud as they could and it was on the video when my spouse came inside.
I am so upset with the lowest blow and deepest.lowest thing someone could say to another person. 1. I thought they weren't supposed to talk to us as they have a lawyer. 2. My spouse has no record and would never think of such and awful thing. 3. Now it makes sense why so many neighbors have turned their heads away when they see us.
So far this has been a civil suit. Much of it has not made sense to us. A neighbor moving in that we never had contact with suing the crap out of us to clean a yard they can't even see. Now we hear this. We know they have talked to neighbors because they say so in the court papers. We have to wonder now if they have accused my spouse of horrible acts like this to the neighbors?
Where do we go from here if at all?? Is this slander?
