In my role, I hire and separate employees. I have worked for
In my role, I hire and separate employees. I have worked for the same company 35 years, and obtained approval to separate a employee that violated our policy (my normal job). Immediately after, I received a phone call from a man that threatened to harm me, later he posted on a local community page encouraging people to harass me at work..including contacting my corporate employer...he listed my name and number. Several people followed suit and contacted me, my staff, and my company defaming my reputation. I had to leave work and stay at home because I feared someone would come to work and harm me or even worse show up and harm the employees trying to hurt me. My employer has placed me on threat assessment and we are taking precautions to ensure I am safe at work. I am having trouble living a normal life now, as I am afraid the group of people solicited to harass me may harm me, my employees or even come to my home. The posting site was deleted, however, I snapped shots of the postings. Is there anything I can do to hold the perpetrator accountable...if so, can you recommend an attorney that I may sue in a civil court.
There is a man who keeps stalking me. He won't leave me alone.
There is a man who keeps stalking me. He won't leave me alone. So far, he hasn't made any threats of violence, but he really makes me nervous and on edge. I know I can't legally file for a restraining order since he's been peaceful so far, but I need to know my options on how to get him to stay away from me. I have changed my number already but he tracks me down at the library near where I stay. What can I do to make him leave me alone?
Hi. I live in Florida. My girlfriend and I broke up about
Hi. I live in Florida. My girlfriend and I broke up about 7 weeks ago. Since then I have created a facebook page and have frequently checked her new boyfriends page to see if they are still together. She has me totally blocked and changed her phone number. I have made NO attempts to contact either of them, nor have I physically gone to places where they are at. She is very paranoid and called my work and complained I was harassing her over two phone calls I made over the first two weeks that we were broken up. Can I get into any trouble over this?
For some time I have been thinking of charging the FBI with
For some time I have been thinking of charging the FBI with obstruction of justice.Which sounds a bit like what you have suggested.I suppose I can't actually charge the FBI with obstruction of justice in a civil suit as that would be a criminal offense. Also the FBI might fight a little harder if they are defending themselves as a bureaucracy as opposed to defending their SPLC informent friends. Violation of my civil rights is another matter, but if in the mean time the appellate judge backs up the district judge, which I'd expect he'll try to find a way to do, then my case is terminated with prejudice.Once my case is terminated with prejudice I think it would have a powerful negative effect on a jury if I try to prove civil rights violation of my right to hire an attorney to sue and charging the FBI with sitting on the evidence, (which they are.)As they have been obstructing justice pretty much up to date there is no hurry about filing civil rights charges against the FBI.Lynn Stuter wrote in 2006 that "now stalking someone is a crime."I don't know yet if that is a crime at a federal level or if it's a crime in various states.There are a lot of question here to work through but I'll try to take them as one or two at a time as related questions.For starters I'm assuming when the defendants counsel said terrorization is not a tort I assume she was referring to the fact that I can not sue for terrorizing me in and of itself.There would have to be actual financial cost damages, which there were. In that case I would have to prove not only that I suffered actual damages but that they were a direct result of the terrorization. Then I would have to prove that defendants had a duty not to terrorize me, and that they should have know the terrorization would likely or could reasonably be expected to result in financial cost damages to me.If terrorizing someone were an actual crime it self I would not have to prove cost damages or the other links. I believe that would be the case as I recall reading some where on line that any action against a person that is a crime in and of itself, can be a justification for a civil law suit, actual damages be damned.At any rate, if that is true I'll try to locate a law saying terrorization (or possibly just stalking) is a crime.But, barring I find terrorization is a crime itself, I think my approach could go like this, and tell me if I'm wrong.Leaving a wet floor in a public business in not a crime and not something a customer can sue for in and of itself. That is an 80 year old lady can not walk into the business, see the wet floor and scream "That's a danger to me. I'm going to sue for your carelessness putting me in danger." She can't sue till she actually slips and falls and breaks her hip.So leaving a wet floor is not a tort.Similarly terrorizing me is not a tort. However, if the lady does break her hip, and if in terror I spend thousands of dollars on private detectives, security systems and defensive armament I can sue too.True or false??
I need to have questions answered for a criminal case related
I need to have questions answered for a criminal case related to aggravated stalking charges in the State of Georgia. The aggravated stalking law on the books prior to 2010 was determined to be unconstitutional (Burke vs. State of Georgia June 2010)because of being vague when written. Does an attorney have an obligation to his client to file an 'Interlocatory Appeal' to the State Supreme Court on behalf of his client after he files a motion in Superior Court that was denied when the attorney felt the law was unconstitutional? Also, is the filing of an Interlocatory Appeal request consider normal and standard practice for an attorney to be expected to do? Thank you for your help in advance. Patrick
Hi, thanks for addressing my problem. I had parental abuseView more legal questions
Hi, thanks for addressing my problem. I had parental abuse and they tried to get as much money as possible using my body first and I suspected it might happen and it was quite a shock when my father manipulated me to go in to modeling and then he asked me to run away from the house so that he can get rid of my responsibilities. I was so strong that I directed my efforts towards studies and got into an engineering college. Then he became a strict disciplinarian and told me that my college mates were flirting and that my college is bad. My mother also asked me to just say hi and bye to guys and stop with that. I followed their advice and remained a good girl. However, they did not want to spend a penny for my marriage and wanted money from my husband. I understood their motive and tried to run away by getting married however they jeopardized the marriage by asking me to sign blank papers that I will return the money spent for the marriage. I signed it and flew off to america from india. However, my mother did not let me live peacefully and was annoying me on the phone immediately after I landed asking me to give the money back. I wasn't working and I was studying so I had no way to return her money immediately and it frustrated me that she was doing it on purpose and draining me emotionally and it was quite noticed by my husband who asked me to stay away from my family. However, my mother-in-law was dissatisfied with picking me from such a poor family that she asked my husband not to even sleep with me and he did the same but at times he came to me lacking control and I refused him because he was an introvert by nature to the extreme and didn't speak my language and was demeaning me initially which he later corrected. However, I had already moved away from him when we didn't even have our first night together and I had given up hope when he didn't even know how to love a girl even in anyway. But his money ambitions were high and I started working even before I finished my masters degree and was always focusing on studies and work and was busy till late night purposely avoiding him as I didn't want the marriage to work and I did't want children through him. During this situation I met the CEO guy in the first company where I worked in America and it was a health care insurance decision consulting company. There even before I met him I suspected some top guy to have an affair with the Quality Assurance Director and I also didn't like the software maintenance work that they asked me to do with an old language. It was totally out of my scope and I was fresh out of college wanting to do exciting stuff as promised but they dropped the project unfortunately which is not my fault. So I went to the CEO's orientation meeting and couple of minutes in to the meeting the CEO started talking about the Quality Assurance department and my suspicion came to face reality. So, its the CEO guy I understood and not my product director. However, this was my first experience to understand all this in a professional environment although I have been in a similar situation back in India but it was not an affair but some kind of infatuation based love. Anyway, I didn't want to continue to work in that company but wanted to give away all my learned ideas and walk out of the company. I think my husband's association had made me do this added to my parents abuse for money. So I hated work that fetched money because it was about to go to wrong hands and I was new to keeping the money to myself as I have just started to earn. I probably would have done this in any company but it happened in that company. If I get too angry like this I always try to do good and walk out not taking anything for myself and that's what I did and I bombarded this CEO with Quality Assurance future related questions and future of product related questions and I was noticed by him. As you know I know he was bad. I didn't care. Work is work. The Human Resources then addressed after him and said they will address this issue later. Then I was called by the Human Resources and asked personal questions like if I have sex with my husband and if I use condom during sex, etc. I was baffled by the questions and got furious because I know its wrong to ask such personal questions. Anyway, I tried to make the best use of the situation and at least learn the business and how it works in America. So, I requested for a mentor and I was given one. However, the CEO started making attempts to get me fall in to his trap by making my computer not work and sending messages through fellow employees that he saw me driving fast on the freeway and trying to connect during Christmas party by sitting with all women around the table and sending a waiter to ask if I need drinks and also at the same time looking at me. I refused and ignored all this but in vain. He followed me in the park where I jogged, book store where I went with my husband to read, more to follow, what was he doing?
