Can I sue someone for making threats to my life on facebook?

1 Answers. Asked on Sep 16th, 2012 on Libel, Slander and Defamation - New Jersey
More details to this question:
Our neighbor has written threatening comments on facebook about my family. She is also stating that the town police think my family is a joke and that the fire marshall told her to start striking back. We have had issues in the past where she illegally allowed over 200 campers to camp out on her property as well as held illegal bonfires without a permit. Her threats included getting me with napalm, she will nail a dead cow heart to my door and burn down my house and hit my children and I with sticks as we are running out? I am scared to death.

a court ordered settlement between the two parties is the better solution. the terms and conditions of the settlement need to be specific. the judge can set the penalties in advance so that both parties know what will occur if there is a violation. has there been police complaints filed by either party ? any court hearings ?  what is the 'record' of what has happened in the past ?

Libel, Slander and Defamation
Has you been harmed by false and malicious statements? You may be entitled to compensation under libel, slander and defamation laws. If a former employer or competitor has maligned your character, or someone has made untrue statements about you on the internet, or a media organization has falsely accused you of committing a crime, then you should consult with libel, slander and defamation attorneys immediately. Defamation can have serious consequences, making it difficult to obtain a job, and hurting your personal and professional reputation. Lawyers at a law firm with defamation experience can assist those who have been defamed as well as those who have been accused of defamation.
