Defamation Lawsuit


We are currently assisting a client in the defense of what is called a “slap” lawsuit filed by an angry local and wealthy business owner.  

Our client had a disastrous cosmetic treatment from this business, and complained on a website called “Yelp.” In order to “slap” customers or persons into not complaining about a business, these businesses file bogus defamation lawsuits against complaining customers in order to coerce them into withdrawing their complaint and forfeiting their First Amendment rights.  

It will take some time, but this case will eventually be dismissed against our client – but not without a fair amount of work.
