Legal Question in Civil Litigation in New Jersey

Earlier this month my neighbor followed me to the bus stop yelling obscenities. When i got home that day i filed harassment charges on her. A week later when she got the summons she filed harassment charges for the same day. In her statement she said i yelled racial slurs at her. She has told multiple people she lied. I know i can file charges for filing a false police report. My question is can i go a after her for defamation of character.

You need to discuss all of this with a lawyer. As her or she will tell you, you have no real damages. You need to worry about defending the charges against you. Call me at 732/773/2768 to discuss.
