Recent Defamation questions

Recently sold a 5 star, successful flower business. When

Recently sold a 5 star, successful flower business. When sold they verbally agreed and assured us they would keep the same upscale design standard in the business I held to for 30 years. Now the new owners want to change the design and everything we agreed to. I have 2 questions:JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: 1) What can I say to the customers re the business sold. CaliforniaJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: 2) Since I am gone now from the business I have become aware that they do not wish to let customers know that the business sold, telling people they are the managers and I am still the owner. Would there any liability on my part? Should I do something about this.

I had met up with a friend who said she would help me write

I had met up with a friend who said she would help me write a donation letter for a nonprofit i recently started. After dinner she stated she had drank too much and work on it another time. We sat down to talk. She put her leg over mine and took me by the arm. I got up and went to bathroom. I came back and she faced me indian style. Out of no where she kisses me then kicks me out the house.I told her i didnt want to have a relationship like that. She stated she was just trying to see if there was a connection. I think in rejection and a debate gone wrong she has went bezerk. I dont think she remembered what she did. I told her what happened that night and stated she made a sexual advance.Now she is threatening to shut down my nonprofit and take me to court for defamation/ slander. We had had conversations of all aspects of life more or less two adults talking/disagreeing in the past. Is this possible? Only person i have spoke to is her concerning the issue. She is stating i am falsely accusing her of sexual misconduct, where as i was just explaining to her that i didnt want to have those kind of relations.
