    I am having an issue with an old friend ( we have now parted ways) that is going around telling people that I allegedly raped her. I am completely appalled by these accusations and want them to stop. This is ruining my reputation with friends and old work places (she works where i used to work.) How do i get someone to stop spreading such Grand accusations. Do i have a case? Perhaps defarmation of character? Can I make a legal case out of this?! I need it to stop immediately

    Sure you can make a legal case - I'd be just as angry as you are. Be aware that they aren't always easy cases to make and you may want to get affidavits from your potential witnesses with regard to the exact words used just in case they are reluctant to testify later. Good luck.
