Can I sue Yelp for a bad review?

It's certainly worth discussing your concerns with a lawyer who specializes in internet law, but any good lawyer will likely tell you that:
  • Consumer speech is protected under the law, even when it's negative
  • Yelp isn't responsible for the opinions of your customers
  • Suing Yelp will only draw more attention to the negative review than if you simply ignored it
  • Lawsuits are extraordinarily expensive, and you may be responsible for Yelp's legal bills at the end of the case
