When someone wants to sue you, don't they usually have to let you know what they're sueing you for?
I'm just curious. I don't know where to post this either. I need some advice for a friend. :mrgreen:

well, if it get to court the reason probably will appear in a letter sent home (or given) to the one who is getting sued.

This is what my friend sent to me today since he's below the age of 18 in the USA laws, which means you're a miner. This is the what the guy sent to him in an email:

Since you have now confirmed to me that you are a child, this matter is now between me & your parents

your parents should receive my notice of intent to sue via Registered US MAIL by the end of next week.


This guy threaten to sue him once before, but he told him what he was sueing for. This guy has been picking on a kid for over a year now & he's 43! He hacked his website, he also stalks him & harasses & talks about him & shows his IP to his members on his phpbb forum!

Well that's where the parents should have intervened. If they haven't already they should...a long time ago :|

Yeah, but some people don't have the money to pay a lawyer & all that crap.
I also don't think he could sue him for anything though.

He threatened him once & if he's now process this sue now that's kinda funny. I don't think it takes forever to send something out to someone. He knew he was 17 & he wanted him to confirm it with him, makes no sense weird.

don't know what communication he has with your friend,ie phone, letter, or just the net, but tell your friend to either ignore him or threaten him with police action followed by legal proceedings.

He was suppose to get something by the end of last week & he never did. I don't know if he is I hardly doubt it though because the guy probably was just trying to scare him. This guy thinks he owns the internet. But he doesn't. He needs to grow up & leave other people alone. Yes he might have a website similar with the names but it's not using the words it's both similar websites doing the same thing but he has different rules & requirements, & information for his members & he doesn't trash talk his members even if they are banned he doesn't go trash talking & keep picking on someone that was banned over a year ago & let his members & staff members play in such childish games. He doesn't tell his members to join their forums & start harassing them I think that's illegal some where down the line.

People like this thrive on attention. They are best ignored. If the guy really does file the lawsuit, you should get some notification other than his blustering.
