A BLM punk is harassing me on facebook. I posted a comment

A BLM punk is harassing me on facebook. I posted a comment on Vermont University. He didn't like my comment and took one of my pictures from my page and reposted it for his own purposes and posted that I am a racist on this page. I like the picture. It is a picture of me and my mister at a Trump rally.But he took it without my permission. And he captioned it, posting that I am a racist.I nicely asked him to remove it, which is the only help I got from FB. His response was that he called me a racist and threatened to post my picture wherever he wanted.Do I have any recourse? I can't find any help from FB.Thank you

Parent neglected, abused by staff at rehab; whom to report?

My Dad was sent to rehab at Arlington Rehab, Birmingham, AL. His doctors at St. Vincent's wanted him to go to Lakeshore Rehab but his insurance would only allow him to go to Arlington. While at Arlington, he was neglected and forced to sit in his own poop for hours. My Dad got out of bed for help and fell. His feeding tube came out of his peg in stomach also. The CNA found my Dad on the floor and dragged him by his ankles back to the bed which is a long distance from the door. The nurse just shoved another feeder tube into his peg and left the other one on the window sill in his room. The staff never called us or filed out any paperwork. I found out that he fell from non-nursing staff. My Dad was so tramatized that he sleep for 24 hours and was completely unresponsive. When he finally came out of it, he begged to come home and wanted to leave on Sunday. My family had a meeting with director, doctor and physical therapy on Monday (already preset meeting). We voiced our complaints on the staff and neglect. They said they would look into it. The earliest that we could discharge was Wednesday morningThis issue is in Alabama. The CNA is still working and didn't seem to be disciplined in anyway. They just made sure he didn't work with my father again. Now my dad is at home and insurance says that they will not cover his food for his feeding tube.Who do we need to report or file a complaint with because the rehab facility is aware but did nothing about it.My Dad is 72 years old and unable to take care of himself without care. We are doing our best to help him but insurance and home health is not even trying to help us.

My bank gave a third party access to my banking online and 3

My bank gave a third party access to my banking online and 3 years worth of my bank statements through their banking online. I had them close my account, but they didn't do it properly and charged me a $25 "fee." They wouldn't let me open another checking account, but rather a savings account which now requires me to have a daily minimum balance. So now I have 2 accounts, 3 in total, and someone has 3 years of my bank statements saved on their computer. I am out no monetary damages except the $25, and the minimum daily balance as of right now, but this is a gross violation of my privacy, and I do not know what my recourse is.

I am involved in a workers' compensation case. I was

I am involved in a workers' compensation case. I was initially denied benefits because the Qualified Medical Examiner (QME) lied in his reports and made statements about my medical history that is not true. For example. The QME in question said in his report that I had chlamydia when I was seven years old, when in fact my medical records say I had allergic rhinitis. Anyway, that is just one example of the lies this doctor made. He made false statements in regards ***** ***** work related injuries to deny me workers' comp benefits. In November 2015, this doctor was deposed by the defense and lied during the deposition (he deliberately lied to deny me benefits). Since then, he hired an attorney regarding his perjury. A second deposition is pending. The defense knows this and offered to settle and asked me to give them figure to settle all claims. One of the claims I filed a writ of review (Court of appeals first appellate California). I have the proof that this doctor lied during a deposition. The defense attorney for workers comp said perjury is a civil offense and the doctor can be sued in civil court. I was surprised the defense agreed to but in the language that if I settle, I will maintain my rights to take legal action against this doctor. Prior to the deposition, the workers' comp insurance company was standing with the doctors report, knowing he lied. Now, they are asking me for a figure to settleJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: californiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: what do you mean?JA: What confuses you?Customer: I filed a complaint with the workers' compensation appeals board, but they said this doctor is credible. I been trying to inform the court this doctor lied but they would not believe me. But now, with the deposition, things has changed and the defense wants to settle. Other than filing a writ of review and informing WCAB medical unit, nothing else has been filed.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Can this doctor be sued in California civil court? The defense counsel said I could because it's a civil matter and workers' comp has nothing to do with it. Or is workers' comp trying to minimize their liability? I was also injured during this QME exam, but learned since his exam is a med-legal exam, nothing can be done. The exam was in December, 2013.
