What is or what constitutes "want of probable cause for the institution of the former proceedings" under number 5 of the 6 elements necessary to sustain an action for malicious prosecution stated in Wisconsin case "Elmer v. Chicago & N.W.R. Co. (1950), 257 Wis. 228,43 N. W. (2nd) 244?2. Also if I brought a "reasonable"suit (legal action) to recover costs incurred as a result of malicious prosecution against me is there a possibility that that I could be counter sued for bringing the malicious prosecution suit if I do not prevail in my suit? In a previous hearing the judge dismissed harassment charges against me and scolded the other attorney for bringing the harassment charges when the other party should have filed a suit for quiet title if they had a claim to our land.
