Thank you for your follow up.

I cannot comment on your specific situation, but generally, making a comment which reflects a personal opinion about employee's professional skills or lack thereof would not give sufficient legal grounds for any type of legal recourse, as such personal opinion is protected under the First Amendment freedom of speech.

I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.

I wish you the best of luck and good luck!
