    If you are not a sex offender you can sue her for defamation.

    If you are a sex offender, it's public record so you have nothing to sue for.

    I suggest you begin searching for another place to live, assuming your landlord has notified you that your lease will not be renewed.

    Just as you could have chosen NOT to renew the lease, the landlord appears to have exercised her right to not renew your lease, as detailed in your current lease contract.

    What makes you think that any of that information, if true, is illegal for her to talk about freely?

    In any future posts, please make an effort to use something that resembles proper capitalization and punctuation. Doing so will make it easier for others to read and understand what you write.

    What "personal information" and to whom is she giving this information? Have you suffered any damages as a result?

    Which of these are you?

    What makes you think "they are not allowed to do that"? A person's status as a registered sex offender is a matter of public record, and no law prohibits anyone from disseminating that information. As far as "who [sic] she is going to evict," that's also not something that a landlord is legally precluded from disclosing.
