    I think you are refering to Defamation of Character. But really was your job that great that you want to go through all the hassle and money of sueing. Fuck them and get a better job instead .

    Well yeah its plausible, you can sue anyone you want for almost anything in the states but will you win is the key question. And even if you do will you win enough money to cover all the costs of court and lawyers etc.... Its super expensive and would probaly take a few months.......I doubt its worth it .

    wait...if u had no felonies why do u have a probation officer? give us some more history...maybe they found something that wasn't outstanding for which u already served time....but whatever, im no single female lawyer so i shouldnt really be talking
