Can we sue our neighbors for false allegations just to harrass us?
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Albany NY
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: We spoke to landlord who sided with us but always was given no recourse. We are moving end of October just cause of the stress of it all. It happened when was pregnant and 5 days into giving birth when they called the cops on my husband for throwing trash because it was trash day, and they alleged that we scratched their car. A Cop came and sided with us as there was no scratch and no intention of any damage. Cop statee clearly neighbors were making trouble for us and we let the cop speak to landlord who sides with us. Neighbor was blocking the driveway with their parked car and was in the way of the trash bins but was very careful moving trash/baby stuff boxes. Have reached out to Atty office under my legal plan but they states they don’t do harrassment. Have put this on hold because I have just given birth but it’s now going on 6 weeks post birth and neighbor is once again trying to start things by checkinb if we scratched her car after trash day.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Wanted to know if this is an actionable case. Have been very stressed given I was close to giving birth when this happened. And decided on holding off any legal action in fear of my health deteriorationh with the stress

I am a former resident of a mental health facility in Illinois. I was discharged in July of 2015, as qualified by the states “Moving On” program. I was also a regular attending member of Hammond Baptist Church, and I expected support and encouragement from people I thought were my friends upon my discharge. Instead, they accused me of having sex for money to pay for my apartment. They refused to visit me, telling people I am immoral and had shady goings on in my home. When I married my boyfriend of 25 years in 2017, they said they didn’t believe me and said we were “fornicating”. People at church shunned me, and and made no secret about backstabbing me. My former Sunday school teacher, Genevieve Atchison accused me of stealing, and even the pastor indicated he believed them. (John Wilkerson). I asked the head of the IT department to see my file. There was a picture of someone else. They said I had a daughter named Lynette, which was made up by Mrs Atchison, and didn’t even acknowledge that I was married and changed my name. I am heartbroken for spending all that time there, and how they have humiliated me. My husband had cancer and died a year and a half ago.
JA: Have you talked to an IL lawyer about this?
Customer: No.
JA: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: This is the first step. Except some venting Google reviews. I am reaching out to you because I was at the consent decree hearing and I remember the ACLU being there.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Tell him/her to ask me whatever questions they have.

I rented my property to a man and his wife. The husband needed a caregiver and the son took on that job. The son's name is***** is only 44 years of age and our property is in a 55+ community. The father passed away in April and the mother is now in a skilled nursing home facility. After the father passed away and the mother left the home the caregiver son refused to leave the rental. We have served him with eviction papers, which he ignored. We have a judgment pending with the Superior Court in San Diego County (California). Code enforcement just contacted me today, telling me that the water and electricity/gas had been turned off since May. The lady from code enforcement told me that it was against the law for anyone to live in a house without proper utilities. Therefore, I must pay to have the utilities turned back on so Joseph can continue to live there until everything is processed through the courts and the sheriff comes and throws him out (which could take months). Do I have any options in this case?
JA: Is there anything in the lease that is not being honored?
Customer: Joseph is not on the lease. He is only a caregiver. Only his parents were the lease holders. The parents were responsible for the utilities and maintenance of the property.
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: Also Joseph has not paid any rent.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: The property as of the death of the father was on a month-to-month basis.
