A colleague of mine rubbed and scratched me. I went to the police but they didn’t file any report. However, I quit after telling them what had happened to me. I heard later that the person was show caused for his behavior but no disciplinary action was taken against him. It has been now around 6 weeks since the issue. I came to know from some place that that colleague is now going to sue me for defamation. Can she do that? I need some protection as I’m very nervous.

Yes, she can do that. You know anyone can sue anyone for anything. The federal law has provided the citizens of this great nation with the power to sue anyone. However, based on the facts that you’ve provided us, there is no hope for her to win. Even an experienced defamation lawyer would think twice before taking on her case.
