I had a miscommunication with one of my neighbors and he, to take some sort of revenge, complained my landlord that I regular do drugs and threaten him over phone. This is completely wrong and I can pass an UA at anytime. I’m thinking of filing a defamation of character suit against that neighbor who made this false accusation. The accusation was completely baseless and derogatory. Do I have grounds to file?

First, you need to confirm if it was a defamation or slander. Consult with a knowledgeable attorney before concluding on any step. Hope this helps!

You may sue, but has this defamation hurt your reputation to any extent possible? Generally, these kinds of lawsuits stop someone wither from getting a job or compel to suffer some kind of economic damage. You, perhaps haven’t suffered anything to sue.
