While my husband and I were separated but trying to work

While my husband and I were separated but trying to work things out and dating, he used to send me naked pictures. We were together trying to work on the marriage (or that was what I was made to believe for over 1.5 years). One day I was talking to his sister and she was asking me questions about her brother and I told her we were dating and working things out and getting together. Well she asked me for proof of those texts and some of those pictures as proof. Well, I screenshot some texts and I think I sent her lower body naked pic as proof (I didn't understand why she was asking me but I found out later on that it was because he was with another woman at the same time). Would that a considered dissemination of pictures and a felony? I did not publish them or threaten anyone with them or threaten or make them public. I was wondering if he could file charges against me for sending it to his sister? This was done over 1.5 years ago and he knew about it at that time.

My bank gave a third party access to my banking online and 3

My bank gave a third party access to my banking online and 3 years worth of my bank statements through their banking online. I had them close my account, but they didn't do it properly and charged me a $25 "fee." They wouldn't let me open another checking account, but rather a savings account which now requires me to have a daily minimum balance. So now I have 2 accounts, 3 in total, and someone has 3 years of my bank statements saved on their computer. I am out no monetary damages except the $25, and the minimum daily balance as of right now, but this is a gross violation of my privacy, and I do not know what my recourse is.

I have a neighbor that is harassing us. She uses her car to

I have a neighbor that is harassing us. She uses her car to (while driving her car) to literally block our path while we are driving our car. That is to say she will deviate from the correct flow of traffic to stop us in our lane on our side street. I have a video of her breaking these traffic laws to deliberately cause an accident.What can I do about this?I have her work email address and the email addresses for all her fellow employees. I want to send the video of her actions to everyone telling her to stop the harassment or the authorities will get involved.We don't talk to her, never have. We keep to ourselves and are quiet & considerate. But her harassment has to stop. I think she feels insulted that we do not acknowledge her.

A company claims to have been able to trademark the wearing of a kilt as a uniform for washing windows. They have threatened legal action if I do not cease and desist from wearing a kilt when I wash windows as part of my business activity. Is there a case here or should I simply ignore the threats?

A former partner, who resigned and left the company on her

A former partner, who resigned and left the company on her own has been spreading lies and rumors about us defrauding her. Now not only is the company being slandered but so are myself and the remaining partners being slandered by her and her friends. We sent her a cease and desist certified letters after receiving them she called the police in her city and said we were harassing her, and that we send her some eyelashes to her old apartment and showed the police the certified tracking numbers from three of the letters as proof of the harassment by sending her eyelashes and some old phone calls in which she was not threaten or harassed in anyway from me I merely told here to leave me alone and stop spreading lies about me there was swearing involved but not threats. Since she left we have lost our grant writer and consultant she told us that the partner who left had contacted her privately also we were suppose to co-sponsor an event in Las vegas we were told yesterday that we couldn't and we can't even rent a table at the event because of some issue which they found out about. They wouldn't tell us what it is just they don't think anyone will work with us in this town because of it. We relocated to Las Vegas spending a lot of money to build our business and this person and her friends are destroying it. She filed a false police report and showed the police tracking that was from the certified cease and desist letters. Is there anything we can do about this situation. We have been slandered on social media as well. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks
