What grounds do you need to have to file a Mental Anguish lawsuit against someone? I am asking because my Cousin has petitioned for Guardianship of our 92 year old Grandmother who is in a nursing home. My father, mother, and older Sister have been the ones taking care of her and visiting her since she was placed in the facility. My father passed away in March, and this cousin came to my mom's house 3-weeks after he died demanding all of my grandmother's things(will, bank accounts, pictures, etc.) and flashing a Power of Attorney. My mother had a Power of Attorney too. Needless to say, my mother did not give her anything so the cousin has now filed for Guardianship of Grandmother. The allegations(theft, coertion, commingling funds, etc) the cousin has made in the paper's against my mother and father are total LIES! The reason for a Civil suit would be to recoop all of the money it is taking to fight this and to seek damages because of the stress and depression my mother has had to endure because of this. Do we have a case?? There is more to this, but that's the basics of the story.
