Customer Question
Hello, I was subpoena...

Hello, I was subpoena to appear before the grand jury. I submitted a copy of the subpoena to my employer who in turn investigated that the case on line and mentioned the entire case of my sister being murdered to the entire staff

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Washington, dc

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I went to the owner of the company and expressed that I felt it was an invasion of privacy and disrespectful ..he responded "Oh well"

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I feel that I am target here at my job with several defaming comments that are alleged by others but I have never spoken with the third party... I have everything in writing where she acknowledge seeing that the subpoena was a murder case

You would have right here to sue for invasion of privacy and defamation if there were false statements made.Consider local lawyer to send cease and desist letter here.If it doesn't stop here you may sue employer and anyone else involved.I agree with you the employer should have respected your privacy in this matter and the others who made false statements defamed you .

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
