My friend's granddaughter, approx 14 years old, has recently

My friend's granddaughter, approx 14 years old, has recently been the victim of a vicious e mail attack from a girl or girls her age whom she knows. The reasons for this attack are unclear, but this girl apparently rallied other classmates against my friend's granddaughter, and either she alone or they together sent a series of email attacks to my friend's granddaughter which were so vicious and hateful (I have not seen them- my friend wouldn't even repeat them to me over the phone) that the girl cut herself, was taken to the psyche facility Laurel Ridge, and is now on suicide watch.I have no idea what laws, if any, have been broken here, or what recourse my friend might have apart from reporting the e mail to the school authorities. My friend and her son and daughter-in-law have kept the e mails. But it seems to me that this is an attack, albeit not a physical one, and should have consequences for the perpetrator.These friends of mine are disadvantaged financially and physically- the son has been hospitalized with injuries, and his mother, my friend, is just now recovering from having broken her foot. They don't have resources or any idea of where to turn, so I'm looking online to try to find some San Antonio agency which might be able to provide at least advice on what to do or what recourse they might have. The perpetrator is another teenaged girl, it's true, but it seems to me that that does not excuse her engaging in behavior that has resulted in harm to another.please advise if you can, maybe just contact numbers for other entities or agencies which could help.thank you,James IrelanSan Antonio ***@******.*** (###) ###-####

I have been dealing with 1 neighbor in my condo units that calls the police on me multiple

I have been dealing with 1 neighbor in my condo units that calls the police on me multiple times a week and says my dog is making noise and bothering him. Most calls are unsubstantiated, and some the officer responding can hear him occasionally bark or make noise while standing at my window or front door. I have asked for this to stop via the responding officer and his superior for 10 months to no avail. The officer indicates that because my neighbor called or submitted the complaint it is automatically against the ordinance, although the ordinance reads that noise from an animal must be excessive and continuous. I don't know where else to turn at this point to make it stop.

[Subject: New York harassment law] I'm looking into

[Subject: New York harassment law] I'm looking into discouraging a jerk of a neighbor from further harassing me and generally making me by composing and sending disparaging letters about her to people whom she associates with (it'd take a while to explainthe full situation, but she's made many enemies here, including myself). <br>I've been told when discussing a similar subject to be careful not to lie, if I do so. Based on the point &quot;2) N.Y. Penal Law § 240.26 - Harassment in the second degree&quot; in the following article, is it also important that I avoid appearing as if I'm purely outto embarrass her (such as asking the recipients to tell her to leave me alone)?: http://www.withoutmyconsent.org/attorneys/offenses-against-public-order-eg-harassment-nuisance-ny-penal-law-article-240<br>Is there anything else that'd be good for me to know? Particularly familiarity with New York law or Nassau County court systems would be most helpful.<br>If you're curious, I'm going to first confront her with words to the effect of that if she doesn't apologize for a couple of certain acts, that I'm going to make her life hard. Thanks in advance.

Detective called me last night he says my phone was stolen

Detective called me last night he says my phone was stolen in vegas even though I live in Colorado and so does she so they cant help me. So the fact that she has harassed me in Colorado and has been menacing with me is ok cause the phone was stolen in vegas. she continues to friend request my face book with my linked in call my job but nothing they can do in Colorado. They stated I have all the contacts from her documented. I was also informed he tried to call her to get her side she said she has an attorney so he cant contact her anymore. I guess an attorney means you are not subject to questioning its been four weeks I provided three witnesses all interview he then call me last night and is recoeding me I asked If I was being recorded he said yes I said would you mind letting me know in the future he just seems shady. We both live in Colorado phone was returned to me after I reported it stolen in Colorado but it was wiped clean

Im doing research for a presentation on the potential liabilities

I'm doing research for a presentation on the potential liabilities of personal, on the job relationships for project management professionals.Here's the scenario: A project manager as an employee, independent contractor or employee of an outside firm may have employees of a client department/company reporting to him/her during the temporary duration of a project. The PM has no authority to hire/terminate or have input to a project team member's performance review.The relationship ends badly. Prior to the end of the relationship, the team member had filed no grievances with his/her employer alleging sexual harassment or unwanted advances/attention by the project manager. The team member entered into a relationship by mutual agreement and had no complaints until the relationship ended.As a result of the PM becoming personally involved with the project team member, does the project team member have grounds to allege sexual harassment as a result of the relationship? To what extent can the PM be held accountable and/prosecuted under federal and Minnesota sexual harassment law?
