A lawyer has sent me a letter threatening to sue me for an assault on his client that I did not commit. He states in the letter that he has eye witness testimony and a police report implicating me in the assault. I was not involved in the fight but my friend was. I was not even near the fight but I was stopped by the police and questioned about it. I was not arrested but now 10 months later they want to sue me? How can this be? Is this extortion? What if the police report is inaccurate and says I did beat someone up even though I didnt?
