I am a male teacher and another very bitter and unbalanced female teacher at my school has written a letter to the assistant superintendent of the district telling her all the things that she thinks are wrong at our school. Apparently, she passed this letter around school to different people in an attempt to get signatures, but people would not go along with it. In the letter she lied by writing that I had pushed another teacher (her close friend) on two separate occasions that were a whole year apart. The asst. superintendent dismissed the whole letter, except for that part. She called the teacher that was supposedly pushed and she also lied and said I pushed her. I was called in to say my side of the story, I told the truth and said I have no idea what she is talking about. Then I was told that an investigation was going to take place in which witnesses who work in the office will be interviewed. I know that these allegations will be unfounded because I never pushed the women EVER. I am a hundred pounds heavier than her and a foot taller, if I would have pushed her up against the wall like she said I did, she would have been hurt badly. Also, why would anyone wait a year to tell a superior she was pushed by a man in the workplace? It is just all so suspicious and doesn't make sense. Once this investigation is over I want to sue both of them. I would like to sue the woman who wrote the letter, passed it around, and eventually sent it to our superior for libel. And I would like to sue the woman who lied to the asst. superintendent for slander. These women have a history of lying and making false accusations. This is not out of nowhere. These are obviously malicious attempts to get my fired. They are holding a long standing grudge against me for some disagreements we have had in the past. If I do not defend myself legally now what will be next? Please tell me if I have a case. If so what steps shall I take and what will the consequences be if they are found guilty of libel and slander?
