If someone wrote an email to someone else about me to defame

If someone wrote an email to someone else about me to defame me and garner their cooperation in writing a letter to our employer in the attempts of getting out of a harassment situation, would that be considered libel and be actionable? If so, is there a statute of limitations for such? Also, if I know that the email was written and sent but I don't have it, are there ways to get the email as evidence?

I want to file an injunction against naval training ops out

I want to file an injunction against naval training ops out of FL. We live in AL and after misrepresenting in public, what T6 touch and go activity would mean to our dense neighborhood, we have 38,000 loops over our heads daily within a year. They fly too low (below their own guidelines) and are so loud you cannot hear in your house or yard. Several residents have witnessed near mid-air collisions with other planes and also flocks of birds. We are a condensed area, and if a plane crashes, as has happened twice in the last couple of weeks with training aircraft in FL and MD, people on the ground here will die because there is no safe, open area, any more to crash land. navy says Barin Field has always had training. That is true, BUT, they never had modified T6s until runways were extended in 2014 AFTER they said no impact over us. To put it mildly, they lied. Now they ignore. We have asked Mayor Koniar of Foley, in various meetings, to file an injunction but he won't cross the military, i.e.., Whiting Airfield, ie., TRAW5 out of Corpus Cristie, TX who oversees all of these hundreds of thousands of flights, literally, all over So. Baldwin County, the most populated and fast growing tourist area in the state! Congressman Byrne, District 1, wrote one letter then said "he worked hard, could do no more". People down here think they have no recourse because of national security being what it is. Truth is, the Navy has 13 fields, several in FL, where they are based, that could do this necessary pilot training. How do I file an injunction to get the planes stopped until we can examine the truth of the altitude and danger to those of us living under this menace? Thank you, ***** *****JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Sorry, meant to say Alabama. Real Estate not required to disclose airports nearby. But in this case, it would not have mattered, because before 2014, we were told that instead of the T34 training, which everyone accepted, T6 would replace them and no impact. In fact, we were told in public meetings, and in EA assessments that planes would fly high and be less noisy. Now there are so many in the air, with other private planes passing back and forth, that the danger is eminent.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: we have filed nothing, but have reported, hundreds of times to the city officials, to Whiting Airfield, to TRAW5 in TX, and to FAA. They ALL say "it's the military, and they say they are doing everything right". They are not, and they know it. And we know it. I, and many others, have researched this in other parts of the country and found that the only time the Navy, and sometimes Air Force, answered any questions, was when they were brought to court. We have tried to avoid that, but after one year, and after two years of incessant noise and danger which is causing harm to our health not to mention no quality of life when they are flying, we need to do something dramatic, I think. They just "proceed until apprehended" or until someone is killed in a crash, which undoubtably will occur. Statistics bear that out. We have over 38,000 loops (navy docs obtained from FOIA confirm this) in one year just in the 2 mile radius around Barin Field in Foley, AL. There are five fields being used in So. Baldwin County, AL, totaling hundreds of thousand of flights over the highly populated towns of Foley, AL, Gulf Shores, AL and Fairhope, AL. All towns marketed as "paradise", "utopia" with not one mention of any military ops coming 55 miles away from Milton, FL. This is not, and never has been, a military base town such as Pensacola or Eglin which are within 1-2 hours away. That is why we, any many others, moved here. We have been scammed, for sure, and now danger is added to the mix. What can we do? Thank youJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I would like to also sue, personally, using federal tort claim, but need help with that,too. My health is being ruined (I have MS and had cancer but am fine now) and the stress is just exacerbating everything. Immediately though, I would love to get these flights stopped so what is going on here can be publicly examined through the courts.
