Unfortunately, there aren't enough jail cells for all the malicious screwballs out there on the internet. Whether or not you can sue depends on whether you can find him. Also unfortunately, there are third party websites that are used by malicious screwballs, and the law protects these sites from liability.

The facts as stated so far do not disclose whether or not you have a claim. It is possible that if the facts exist, that there may be a claim for defamation. Contact our office to discuss in more detail. You can obtain our contact information from our website at www.higagipsonllp.com.
