Long story but in a nutshell my neighbor came over as I was

Long story but in a nutshell my neighbor came over as I was leaving in the car to go to work and started yelling and call me vulgar names - claiming my dog woke her up. When I started to drive away she stood in front of my car and said she wasn't going to let me go to work. I kept creeping forward until she moved out of the way, but she then came back to the drivers side of the car and slapped me. I did call 911 and the police office is bring me back the paperwork to prosecute the neighbor. Should I also hire an attorney to represent me in this case or would it be better off to appear by myself. I've never dealt with anything like this in my life and am appalled at my neighbors behavior.

I work major city in Texas. I had an argument with a

I work for a major city in Texas. I had an argument with a co-worker on the floor. It took 2 months for the investigation and the other person was an asst supervisor. Last week the ADM and supervisor for the shift of the occurrence (I was working overtime) pulled me in the office say due to witness statements I started the argument. I was written up for disruption in the workplace. The other woman was not. The ADM then looked at me and told me he has seen changes in my moods and is recommending mandatory EAP. He is not my manager and I never see him. I am still stunned. I have already been using EAP due to personal issues. I tried to tell him this which he ignored. I then felt I had to give more info as to why which is none of their business. He still ignored me, called EAP for our City then put me on the line. Isn't there a HIPPA violation? I want to name him, the supervisor and this division in a lawsuit if possible. Please tell me I have a case. I believe am have been targeted my the Division for not going above and beyond like everyone else and being regular average which should by no means jeopardize my job. Thank you

My lawyers are about to submit judgement as

My lawyers are about to submit for summary judgement as other side not proving case. In event the judge denies, I want to know if we prove plaintiff not able to win any damages due to her being fired from us; but disclosing in deposition that she stopped looking for work 3 months later due to staying home with children and then learned she's had an online business before being fired from us...which my understanding is she's no longer allowed to be awarded damages...can she still sue for punitive/emotional damages and his legal fees; if were to win at jury?
