My question involves defamation in the state of: PA
I am on the board on my homeowner's association. A neighbor has been continuously harrassing my husband by screaming at him in the street and giving him the middle finger. We have no idea why he's been acting this way! My husband has totally ignored all attempted altercations with this neighbor.
I noticed this neighbor going door-to-door the othe night w/a clipboard in hand. Apparently, he was petitioning neighbors to have me removed from my position on the board. At a board meeting last night, he announced that I was incompetent, then produced a petition (most signatures were illegible).
I have in no way been incompetent as Secretary to this board. Matter of fact, the property manager has commended me several times for my attention to detail related to board matters.
This is a personal vendetta against my husband. Since the neighbor is getting no reaction from my husband, he's decided to get to him through me.
Do I have grounds to sue him for defamation of character? Thank you.
