He went up to the boss, dragged a big white board into his office.

Wrote company name, drew a big d**k pic on it.

Circled the d**k's head, wrote boss' name and drew an arrow pointing to the circle.

Titled the board reason for me leaving.

Last I heard, they filed a case against him. Not sure about the outcome of it.

    Legal action? For what?
    I don't think calling someone a dickhead is exactly slander...

    @ArcaneEye Sounds like the boss really was a dickhead.

    @Lahsen2016 heh, in Northern Norway you can call a police officer a fucking horse cock and he can’t do anything about it. There’s a list of words they have to accept. Though, in Southern Norway, that isn’t the case

    @Lahsen2016 Hurting someone's feelings is illegal? What the hell?

    Enforcement of that law would be purely subjective: you cannot prove nor quantify offense, and people could feign offense at anyone they didn't like. Thus, people could get anyone they wanted in trouble for basically anything. That's horrifying, and absolutely not how laws are supposed to work.

    @Lahsen2016 Petition to revoke the law?
    I'm sure plenty of (sane) people would sign, unless the government would see the petition itself as an insult...

    @Root legal action for defamation. This was noticed by almost 25-30 people, and some of them took photos.

    @ibrahmin13 Calling someone a dickhead should not be illegal. Even if it's on the front page of the newspaper. It's simply not criminal. Its expressing an unsolicited opinion -- who cares?

    If instead it was accusing him if a crime (e.g. murder), it would be libel or slander -- those are illegal because it's character assassination.

    But a random insult like "Dickhead"? That's just ridiculous.

    If it's actually illegal to insult people in Germany, I'm fucked if I ever make it there...

    Refer to emotional distress.

    In a civil lawsuit, you do not need to prove beyond doubt a certain argument, only tip the scale.

    You have a lot of people claiming emotional distress as a last measure when they don’t have a case, often just to counter. Watch any prime time judge show on cable ( or don’t).

    Therefore, I think the idea isn’t to prove you are offended or distressed, simply make a case that certain events occurred that would most likely lead to emotional distress or pain.

    E.g. stalking, harassment, defamation, negligence, etc.

    Anyway, that is the case for emotional distress. I’m no expert, these are just my thoughts.

    @Root oh, didn’t see your later posts about speech. I was replying to your earlier comments about why this even exists.

    The one where you mention how such laws are difficult to enforce and quantify.

    Also, that was an extremely offensive comment. You will be hearing from my legal team shortly.
