My question involves defamation in the state of: California
My GF and her ex best friend have been at each others throats since she quit and opened up a harrassment lawsuit against the company they both worked for. Both acting like teenagers back and forth which I opted to have no part of, until just recently. My GFs old friend has opened up a restraining order process against my GF, but named me in their written statement. Her and her boyfriend are stating that I have called them and left threatening voicmails promising violence and death threats and that I have been arrested on multiple accounts for drug related crimes. I have not taken a drugs besides alcohol in over 20 years and have certainly never called and made any threats. I consider their accusations against me be a defamation tort (libel) and if they stick to it at the hearing slanderous as well as perjury. I can easily disprove their statements with phone records and criminal background check. What should I do?
