Hello, how are you? Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today.

Thanks for your message, sorry to hear about this. You can send him a cease and desist letter. A Cease and Desist Letter acts as a warning that you plan on involving the authorities if the recipient does not stop an action or behaviour.

If this does not work, then you will need to take legal action for defamation. Cases of defamation are complex and expensive, and the limitation period is only 1 year for a defamation claim, so ensure you issue the claim at court within a year of the incident.
I hope this helps. Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer, please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions. I am happy to help.
Hello, just following up on this to ensure you're satisfied with what you need to do. Please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions. I am happy to help. All the best, John.
I understand. It appears your request would be outside the scope of service we offer here at Just Answer as we cannot form solicitor-client relationships, which would be required if we were to request certain documents on your behalf. As an internet forum (not a law firm) we do not act for people. We give information and guidance from a legal standpoint only.
In the first instance you should request the documents yourself, where if not provided you should seek to instruct a law firm because as you say it may be better and hold more weight.
