Hi again Jo,
The person doing the accusing is the husband of the woman he is claiming I and my wife have slandered.
He has now twice emailed accusing us individually of slander, and to cease and desist.
He won't say what it is we are alleged to have said that is slanderous, where we're supposed to have said it, or where.
At the same time, his wife has been spreading lies about my wife on social media - apparently just today my wife has been called a bitch and a c**p choreographer.
She has even tried to damage the working relationship between my wife and the places she hires.
Would I be right in thinking that he can't sue for slander on behalf of his wife?
This is just one more thing with the dance school issues you helped answer a few weeks ago.
It's still ongoing.
I don't think she has the spine. She is suing us in the small claims court as well (which I asked you about yesterday). As well as having had two visits from the police as they felt her actions were bordering on harassment. Her own business relies on having a very clean criminal record, which is why I think she's doing it through her husband.
My wife actually closed down her business last week because of the stress this woman has been the cause of.
It's such a shame that people are allowed to say what they want, and accuse people of whatever they want, without spending a fortune on private action.
