What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Alabama
A little over a week ago a DHR case worker came to my house due to accusations against me and my husband specifically stating that I was using PCP and heroin and that my husband was doing cocaine and that there was domestic violence in my house hold. I of course passed a drug test and proved that my husband and I had been separated for a long time now so there was no domestic violence going on between us. The DHR case worker told me that he could not tell me who made the accusations because he did not know, but if I got a lawyer I could find out. My question is that since the allegation was not one to the effect of some one believed that I was doing drugs, it was specifically stated as the two drugs listed above, would I have a case on defamation, or slander? I am not looking for a lawsuit for a bunch of money, but I would like for whoever did this to be punished in one way or another. They really did cause disruption to my life because it has upsest me very much. I have never even seen the drugs I was accused of doing much less done them so I just wanted a little advice.
