More details to this question:
Last Friday we reported to the school that our son reported being pinched in the penis by another student. This student, according to our son, has hit him on numerous occasions at school. This student also has had another complaint filed by another mom (who we know and are aware of the complaint). The school filed a dcf case. Now a friend of the students mother has told at least two other mothers that our son has touched another child inappropriately. Do we have any legal standing to get this person to stop slandering our child?

Sure you can hire a lawyer to pursue a defamation lawsuit or send a cease and desist letter. Such cases are expensive and can become hotly litigated and are NOT contingent fee cases like car accidents but usually handled on an hourlyrate/retainer basis. If you want to pursue such a case - we do handle them and you can contact our office 1-800-922-6442.
