Defamation (which includes slander and libel) is defined as a false statement of fact that harms the reputation of the victim.
If this adult, student, lied about you...and the lies harmed your reputation? YOu can sue them for defamation.You can also consider a lesser measure, having a local attorney send a "cease and desist" letter, threatening a lawsuit if they keep up this defamation. This would be far less expensive than a full blown lawsuit.Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
