I am part of a small religious school/ministry.  A former friend has decided I am involved in a cult and has been maintaining a web site to 'expose the evil'.  They have taken my picture and name from the university site of which I am a part, and posted it on their site (along with other staff members) with dire warnings and accusations, all of which are imagination or ridiculous exaggeration taken out of context.  Do I have any legal recourse to have my name and picture removed from this person's web site?  They claim 'fair use law' gives them the right to post these things.
 
Thank-you,

You may have several causes of action.  Hire an attorney.
