How much can I sue someone for Mental Anguish and Emotional Distress?
The situation has caused drama in my life, situations where I feel I cant even go to certain places in public anymore, emotional hurt to the point where I'm currently going to therapy now, and have had to go to court several times. It's been over a year and 6 months now, and the person still insists on thinking he can just get away with doing what he's doing. i've attempted to ignore him this whole time despite the troubles he has caused, but he because I've been ignoring him, he feels more "in control" i guess. I plan to sue him after I spoke to my lawyer, but I do not know exactly how much to go for?
The amount isn't too necessary really being he has no assets or property, Im just wondering for reference what is the potential amount to write down. Thank you.
I also want to add this has caused me to get arrested by the police and the individual lied to the police officers. Paid thousands of dollars for a lawyer and bail money while he was the plaintiff and didn't pay anything and laughed. The case was of course dismissed. So obviously, handling this situation like two men, won't resolve anything, being I'll probably be put in jail. This isn't a stranger, its a child hood friend.
