An unwanted publication


The local newspaper printed a letter to the editor of a disgruntled client of mine. The news traveled fast; an early morning phone call alerted me to the letter. It contained a long tirade of how she was mistreated and disrespected and she laid the blame of all her difficulties in her life solely with the bad social worker who did nothing for her.  After her earlier campaign to discredit me with my professional organization, I had researched whether the libel or slander angle would work to respond and stop her from spreading lies about me; I had become tired of the relentless efforts to “get me fired” she had threatened me with. Alas, or maybe fortunately, she did not mention my name in the newspaper, so no suit was feasible. Aggravation, that’s all.
