Can I sue for a blatant lie in an email

Recommended Posts

If you could sue someone for lying, the courts would never be able to keep up.

If it were me, I would respond to the email to assert the fact that the conversation never took place.  Keep any emails brief.  For example... I wanted to respond to your email to clarify one thing.  Such a conversation never took place.

You can sue for misrepresenting the legal status of a debt.  This is not misrepresenting the legal status of a debt, unless they are going to claim the conversation somehow reset the SOL.  

As @LaneBlane  said, email them to say the conversation never took place.  If they are stupid enough to claim you reset the SOL in that conversation, or admitted the debt, etc., then and only then might you have a law suit.
