Yelp User Being Sued for Negative Review

by , Comments

A new lawsuit brought by a San Francisco chiropractor Steven Biegel is raising a very good question about online reviews. The chiropractor was none too pleased to find a negative review about his practice on Yelp.

The review was written Christopher Norberg, who has a conflict with the chiropractor over a billing issue. His review said that Biegel was dishonest.

Biegel's attorney is calling it libel, thus the lawsuit. Today, the two sides are undergoing court-ordered mediation. If it's not resolved, the suit will go to court March 2.
