Thanks for your question. Please remember to rate once you get my answer.
Strictly speaking if she has forged your signature then this is fraud. You can report her to the police. Equally you should be able to get an expert to confirm the fraud for the benefit of the court in any civil proceedings.

But what about this charge of discrimination does she have a case because her lawyer mention that he would counter it with a retaliation case because of her calling the city inspector on me and that is not true it is not retaliation it is because she tricked us and committed fraud
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.
They are very different things - if she has forged your signature then this is against the law. Discrimination is a very different matter but is not a defence to forging your signature.
