Can a person sue a village or the sheriffs office for posting your name up at a county fair for everyone to see even thou its false information
i am not an ohio lawyer but in indiana and illinois the answer would be no. this is because governmental agencies typically have immunity for such. however if it was intentional, meaning the sheriff knew the info was wrong and did it intending to embarass you, then you may have a case of libel against that individual. you should call a lawyer in your area and confirm what i am saying. usually phone inquiries are free and most lawyers are happy to speak with prospective new clients. regardless you should politely and respectfully let the governmental agency responsible know that the info is wrong. good luck.
