I had a terrible experience with selling my house per our

I had a terrible experience with selling my house per our realestate agent was awful. I told her how stressed I was over and over .She just did it get us the best price, made us feel insecure about our house and how it looked , pulled low comps. The whole thing has been awful.I posted it on our town's Facebook but did not put her name. I also did not put my address. So I was not saying who it was as I know not to do that.I was just asking if anyone had ever had a bad experience selling their house as I did. And many people answered with similar issues.My agent called this morning and asked me to take it down . This is a Facebook group for the small town I live in. It is not an open public forum or something.She is just worried about her reputation I guess but she called me and said firmly " we provided a service to you so I am asking you to take it down". In a real firm voice like she might sue me. I told her that I hand not put her name and she said that the things that were said ( as I said " my agent " pulled low comps. But never once gave the name or my address so somebody could look it up. ). I have a feeling she was threatening to sue me but not sure she could . I took it down as I don't need that type of drama and not sure why there is not freedom of speech in a closed Facebook group but I need an opinion on if she could have sued me?

My son tried to start a club on his high school campus. It was a controversial club,a Trump club, that not one teacher wanted to be an advisor of. There are 60 clubs on campus and 50 members of faculty. Not one teacher signed on. My son later claimed that his inability to get an advisor was a violation of the equal access act.Finally, the superintendent said, you can meet on campus, but would have to• pay a rental fee for the classroom• purchase a 2 million dollar insurance policy• sign a contract.Since all student clubs must be student run without no adult influence except by an advisor in a supervisory capacity were his rights violated? Was it discriminatory?Can a minor enter into a legally binding contract with a third party?Help! Don't know what to do

I attend Herzing University Orlando campus whose corporate office is located in Wisconsin. Herzing is a private, non-profit, secular University. I have been suspended for speech related accusations (asking too many questions) and am wondering if the state of Florida protects freedom of speech at private universitiesJA: Can you tell me where the nonprofit is registered?Customer: WisconsinJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: to whom?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have also been accused of sending a text message which includes plans to harm an instructor, which I did not do, and have not been allowed to see said message or know it's contents. Additionally, I was not alerted to any allegations prior to walking into a meeting that I was told was regarding a grade dispute, and then having a pretyped letter read to me by the dean stating alegations and indicating the suspension. All of this is contrary to the student handbook as far as how suspension proceedings are supposed to occur

My neighbor has been bothering me and my Airbnb guests—them, mostly with unwanted questions. Problem is, I really don't have much proof. I haven't even asked them to make statements. And other than some video clips of him opening my trash can to put small bits of trash into, there's nothing really on the video especially since having the audio on is (to my belief) illegal.I would like to apply for a restraining order against this neighbor contacting me and any of my Airbnb guests.Shall I wait until I get some written and signed statements from one or more of my Airbnb guests? Or what success will I have if I simply ask the court for a restraining order based solely on my stated issues (bothering my guests, trying to get WiFi passwords, etc.)?
