Woman getting sued for Yelp posts.
A Home Contractor is sueing a Alexandria woman for $750,000 for trashing him on Yelp, Angies List, and some other consumer site. I say GREAT, I hope he wins. She posted an awful review on the sites saying not only was his worh shoddy and needed additional redoing, he also stole jewelry and tresspassed etc. The guy evidentally has a good reputation, and says she never paid her bill, and has cost him $300,000 in biz. He's not sueing Yelp et al, but her personally which is legal and becoming a frequent event by biz folks trashed on Yelp.
I have gotten trashed on Yelp a number of times, especially after I turned them down about advertizing on their site. I have had numerous people tell me they gave me a 5 star review which never showed up. I hate the site and ones like it.
What's your feelings about the lawsuit?
