Negative Yelp, Angie
Be careful of what you write.In 2012, a D.C.-based contractor sued a Fairfax woman for $750,000 over her one-star takedown of his work on her home. And the Virginia Supreme Court is expected to decide soon whether Yelp will be required to turn over the names of anonymous users who disparaged Alexandria’s Hadeed Carpet Cleaners. First Amendment advocates are watching that case closely.
The dispute began in January when Ujimori and her dog Yuki began attending a $175 basic obedience class. Ujimori, an employee of the federal government, said she wanted to socialize her dog because she hopes the white Bolognese will become a therapy dog for the elderly and sick children.
