"...publication of a false statement of fact, made with the requisite
state of mind, that causes injury".
Meaning - if you can proove it is true - it is not libel.
Proof of truth would be a defense in a libel suit.
Stopping a crime would not be a defense: You cannot take into your own hands
- except in case of emergency :
APPROPRIATE self-defense against a PHYSICAL attack.
Some people use words 'self-fefense' in broader sense
but legal profession expects you not to engage in self-defense unless
you or your property is in immediate danger, such as attempted robbery
That said, here is an suggestion. This service does not provide legal advice
- see disclaimer at the bottom of the page. So making a suggestion means that
it does not look like a legal issue, it does not look like a
stalking, it does not look like a any crime was commited by either
You did not stated your gender (I suppose you are both girls) and
that you are student at a US college, probably a foreign student?
Suggestion: Calm down. Your case (based on your incoherent description) is weak.
No one will take seriously assertion that you were harrased
"for 2 years and 6 months .. " and did not move out sooner.
Moving to a different room is a first thing a reasonable person would do
when roomate situations is not pleasant.
Ombudsman probably ignored your complains because your description looks
so emotional and confused. Find a counselor, if necessary a psychologist
available through a health plan, and discuss the issue with him/her.
And no matter what you, do not publish any more negative comments about her;
(true or false). It will not have desired effect, and it will not make
you look good and be popular with other students.
If all you are getting are unwanted emails, just delete them and ignore them.
If the emails are properly signed, sending them is not polite,
but not illegal either. You may set up a filter, which will automatically
send them to trash. Ask your SA (system admin for help, if necessary).
Chances are that unwanted mails will stop in a month or two, if you ignore them.
