My wife is a coach of a jumprope team. One of the team members' parents has escalated a concern that she felt that my wife was discriminating against her child to the teams executive board and other previous team leaders in an email. In the email the parent indicated that if there were any retaliation from the complaint she would notify several external organizations,including my wife's past employers, of discrimination. Is there legal protection to prevent this type of defamation?

You can certainly let this woman know that if she bad-mouths you and defames you by making false accusations the third parties that she knows to be false and that would cause your wife any damages that there would be consequences to hire such as getting sued for defamation. Also let her know that there was no discrimination and there's no retaliation and that she has a right to make a complaint to the executive board concerning her child and accept their decision. However if she makes false accusations about your wife outside the organization then there will be consequences.
