1 posts Posted 30 September 2013 - 08:06 PM I am a home health care provider; most of my clients reside in a building under the Galveston Housing Authority. While I was helping a patient back into his apartment, I was parked in a towing zone,and the manager had my car towed. I?ve been working there for years, and she has my phone number, she could have gave me a call instead of towing my car; so I got angry and called her, "a ****ing bitch." I http://socallawsupport.com/ did not threaten her, or put my hands or any other part of my body on her. She has retaliated by banning me from coming onto the property where I have been working for years, and has almost completely eliminated my income. Do I have any recourse? 16,044 posts Posted 30 September 2013 - 10:42 PM If you could prove that the decision was made only because of the insult you gave her, you might have some recourse if the facility is government owned and operated because that would be First Amendment violation. However, if the decision was made not because of the words you used but rather because of the display of anger over something relatively trivial and/or the parking violation, that the facility likely can do. Consult a local attorney to see if there is anything worth pursuing here.
I suppose that it should go without saying, but displays of anger and insults are naturally going to tick other people off. When that person is someone who can make your life miserable or cost you money (e.g. cop, judge, employer, client, or the manager of a building you need to access) it's usually much more prudent to control your temper and not let it get the best of you. I'm guessing you'd likely agree that whatever momentary pleasure you might have had in insulting her isn't worth losing your livelihood. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://boards.answers.findlaw.com/index.php/topic/227662-unjust-banning/
