She lied to court, case thrown out, but I need job back

QUESTION: Dear Legal Wiz,
A woman I worked with took me to criminal court and lied. I lost my job after everything.
She gave accusations that I threatened to kill her. This was supposed to be after she slandered me that I was trying to rape her. The case was thrown out as the Judge said she was lying.
I lost my job and was kicked out of my home.
I didnt get to ask the Judge for some money, and she didnt suggest it
I am out of work so please help.

She lied

RESPONSE: Dear Clement,
Truley sorry for your experience. You will need to now go to civil court to take action for monies. Since she slandered you and it created damage to you, you should sue for monies for that too.
Every human being is entitled to assistance at the Court, so when you go in a court clerk can better assist and guide you on the baiscs.
They’ll help you to decide all the lawsuits you can bring against her for your shame, loss of job etc.
