Can a kidnapped person sue their kidnapper?
Last night I was watching some MSNBC special about women who had been kidnapped, escaped, and the man was captured.
Even though he was sentenced to prison—what happens after that? Can the victims actually sue?
It seems silly to me that you can sue someone for emotional distress in small claims court, but you don’t hear about people suing for far more important situations.
Is it possible for this to happen?
