My question involves defamation in the state of: Illinois.
My Neighbor has filed false police reports on 7 different times. I was arrested 7 different times for disorderly conduct for allegedly yelling at them and calling them names. Cutting my grass and leaving grass clipping on the sidewalk. Just to name a few.Now I never did these things but the police just take their word for it. I have been to court for these and all have been dismissed (directed finding) by a judge. The judges say there is no law being broken. So my question are these.
1. What can be done to my Neighbor? The police keep taking her word for it. Sue for defamation or slander?
2. What can be done to the police department? Not fully investigating a complaint. False arrest?
