Malicious Prosecution- Narcissists & Their Enablers

Filing lawsuits, injunctions and restraining orders against the victim of a narcissist for whatever perverse satisfaction they get out of the lies,  is malicious and predatory behavior, it  is extreme, outrageous conduct beyond the bounds a decent society can tolerate specifically intending to cause harm to the target. The intolerable behavior is psychological warfare which is specifically designed to maintain contact beyond a restraining order and batter the victim legally. It is extremely frustrating for a victim to be told to hire a lawyer and sue the batterer for intentional inflection of emotional distress. She doesn’t need protection 7 or 9 years down the line when a civil court gets around to looking at the batterer’s behavior, nor does she have the money to hire an attorney, nor will money damages make her whole. She just wants the batterer to go away and leave her alone.

Another disturbing aspect of this legal abuse is the narcissists outward success in luring professionals, attorneys, and even judicial officers into their elaborate schemes. Lawyers, who normally pride themselves on careful analysis of the facts, often fall victim to the batterer’s plea for help. The narcissist will go through several lawyers before settling on one naive or callous enough to assist him in his vendetta to punish his ex-partner for leaving him.

By the time the abuser is on his second or third bogus legal filing, he will have usually manufactured a substantial pile of “evidence” against his victim in the form of affidavits signed by advocates, false complaints filed with state administrative agencies, and innocuous photographs or other documentation which the abuser “claims” has a sinister connotation. Although there are gender-biased attorneys who willingly assist or even actively recruit business from narcissistic people with vindictive schemes, the majority of attorneys who file an unwarranted custody action or help the batterer file a frivolous civil suit against their victims are duped by the same tactics that entice members of the public to assist.

The lawyer, therapist, judge, guardian-ad-litem, expert witness or lay person who has been enticed into the odious machinations of the narcissists grand plan should feel shame upon realizing they have been used as a pawn in the abuser’s elaborate game to control his victim.

Rule 11-type Sanctions for Abuse of Process. The courts already have the power to punish those who misuse legal process. The power lies not in the hands of the frightened victims too emotionally and financially bankrupt to engage in lengthy civil litigation with a batterer which might escalate into more violence, but in the hands of the judges, prosecutors, and court personnel to sanction batterers for abusing legal process. Like good football coaches, judges need to accept the responsibility of refereeing the use of their own playing field. Massachusetts has it’s Anti-SLAPP (anti strategic litigation) statute which, upon motion by the defendant or the initiative of the trial judge, will dismiss non-meritorious pleadings and fine the abuser.

Besides the visible, physical impact of wounds created by battering tactics employed by a narcissistic abuser, there are serious psychological repercussions as well. Reactions of shock, denial, withdrawl, confusion, psychological numbing, and fear are common. The long term effects of abuse include fear, anxiety, fatigue, sleeping and eating disturbances, intense startle reactions, and physical complaints. (Council on Scientific Affairs, American Medical Association, Violence Against Women: Relevance for Medical Practitioners, 267 JAMA 3184, 3184 (1992)). Perceptions of vulnerability, loss, betrayal and hopelessness are more severe for intimate violence victims than for victims of stranger assaults because of their relationship with the abuser. Victims of intimate violence and stalking can exhibit symptoms consistent with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.
