Sinclair and I wanted to know if I could sue the Army? Right…

Customer Question
Hello, my name is*****...

Hello, my name is***** and I wanted to know if I could sue the Army? Right now, my husband is active and they are pursuing a case against him that is based on a lie out child told and this has been going on for a year and half now

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Our child told a friend that her dad tried to touch her and kill her but it did not happen.....she has said she lied about it because she was upset with us. She was also going thru some mental issues at the time this all happened. so she has been making up stories for a while. He is being charged right now and hasn't been removed from the home twice now....this time it has been since Sept and they keep giving us the run around of things This has not only put a strain on me but our 3 children

The short answer is, no. If the Army received a report of misconduct it is obligated to investigate and take measures to prevent further misconduct. From what you've described, there are no grounds to sue the Army.

If the victim fabricated the complaint, and you have proof of that, you could sue the alleged victim.
