Thank you for using JustAnswer!


As a general matter, there is nothing to prevent a person from filing a lawsuit. That doesn't mean, however, that the person will win. From the facts you describe, that type of lawsuit will probably be dismissed as frivolous.


Good luck and best wishes. I hope that you find this information to be helpful and this answer to be ACCEPTable!
