The law doesn't let you cut off communications you find unwanted or unwelcome.n You can ignore them if you believe they have no grounds to sue you; you may also be able to have your email block their emails or send them straight to your "spam" folder, but that's a question for tech support, not an attorney.

Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
