I wish to inform you that you may file a suit but in this case the burden will be on you to show that other person is directly related to stress and that you are not at fault. You will have to show other person's fault in causing emotional stress to your family and other person without any fault of yours has willfully done this act. The pain and suffering may be mental and therefore you may file suit. In this you can file counter claims against the person and can claim damages.

You need SOME realistic cause of action.

Just stress alone is not going to get you too far...what law did they break or what tort was committed?

Do you OWE them more money or did you default on the terms of your mediation agreement? (If they are suing you, I'd bet that you are in default of the agreement, otherwise you would just be going back to a mediator to work out the details instead of being taken to court over it.)

Owing people money and being asked to pay what you owe can be stressful. Doesn't mean that you have cause to sue the other person for making demands that you honor your obligations. I predict that much of that stress will go away once you do that.

In order to file suit, you must be able to prove your accusations are true.

That said, if you can - indeed - prove your allegations against this detective are true (and not simply what you believe to be true) you would be advised by an attorney that you could sue the actual police department itself and name him specifically in the suit.

I strongly urge you to consult with an attorney in person to go over your case. You do have the right to face your accuser in court.

An attorney would be the authority on this subject matter. Nobody who posts here has any legal authority to give you actual legal advice on this matter.

IF you prevail in the criminal case, yes, you may file a suit for malicious prosecution. Since there is an element of prohibited discrimination, you might contact the ACLU to see if one of their attorneys will take up the case for you.

I am sorry for your difficulties. I would just suggest that you speak with a plaintiffs' trial lawyer about all of this. Get a free referral from WORLD Law -- that would be an easy way to do it. Speak with an attorney about filing suit alleging causes of action such as intentional infliction of emotional distress. Not an easy case to prove, don't get me wrong, but you have nothing to lose by simply inquiring about your options.
