Permanent link  Dentist wins first round in lawsuit against Yelp and yelper who posted negative review

03/25/2009

From Dr. Bicuspid:

The dentist who sued a reviewer on Yelp.com won the first round of her court battle yesterday when a judge overruled a motion to dismiss the suit.

Yelp.com, one of the original defendants in the suit, will appeal the ruling and the other defendants, Tai Jing and Jia Ma, will probably appeal as well, according to Paul Clifford, one of their attorneys.

Yvonne Wong, D.D.S., of Foster City, CA, showed she had at least a minimal chance of prevailing, so the case should not be dismissed under California's anti-SLAPP (strategic lawsuit against public participation) law, the judge ruled.
