IF YOU FEAR FOR YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY BUT DO NOT WISH TO MAKE IT A CRIMINAL CASE
It may be a good idea then to file for a restraining order. Mississippi generally has restraining orders for family members and romantic partners, but one can file for a restraining order in CA which has a broader definition:www.courts.ca.gov/1260.htm
IF YOU FEAR FOR YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY AND DO WISH TO MAKE IT A CRIMINAL CASE
Then one can simply file a police complaint with the local police, where she may be charged with stalking (§ 97-3-107) and cyberstalking (§ 97-45-15). As part of a criminal charge, the Court normally puts into place a restraining order against the victim while the case is ongoing.
IF YOU WISH TO SUE IN COURT
To sue in a state court, one needs to have a "cause of action." There are numerous causes of action, such as "breach of contract
," "negligence," "fraud," "unjust enrichment," etc., as well as causes of action rooted in statutory law. Every state has their own although they are very similar to each other in every state because they all stem from the same common law. A pleading in Court needs at least one cause of action, although it is not unusual to have more than one.
Someone in your situation can possibly sue for:
INTENTIONAL INFLICTION OF EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, and DEFAMATION
(as it relates to the business).
This would require an actual lawsuit, so it may be a little more nuanced and prolonged.
