Thats what I was thinking - I cannot see that he has any rights, but he is bein very aggressive towards me and sent some nasty emails. he says that I need to get Companies house to post a statement saying it is not true (I dont think this is possible anyway). He has also said that if I don't respond he will spready rumours to my clients and competitors to bring my business down. Do you know where I stand on this? I'm assuming I'd have to put some sort of injunction in place?
Hi Thanks for your reply. I apologise for my delay in responding but for some reason the system did not notify me of you response and once you "relist" it no longer appears in my questions. You are completely correct, you cannot get companies house to post anything. It sounds as if he is a nasty piece of work and trying to bully and bluster. If he were to carry out his threats you could sue for defamation and get an injunction to prevent him. Really the choices are to ignore him or to respond either yourself or through a solicitor saying that his threatening e-mails are actionable and clear evidence of his intention to maliciously interfere with you and your business and you will sue him if he does anything of the kind. You might also say harassment and threatening behaviour is against the law and you will report him to the police.
