Legal Action and Intimidation

In ministry, if it is a dynamic ministry, one will inevitably receive threats of legal action: "I'll sue you! You'll hear from my lawyers! You'll pay for this! I'll have you charged!" and so on. However, one attorney pointed out to me that, if such threats come from an amateur -- which is to say, from someone who is not a professional lawyer, a police officer, a regulator, and so on -- they are as yet unfounded. That means that they likely represent intimidation -- which is an offence. With this in mind, I myself have not given people warnings of legal action, of whatever kind. If it is necessary, I simply act. OBSERVATION: However, one needs to give people every chance to solve a problem before one acts.
