If Yelp Ever Deletes Your Account, You Should Sue, Sue, Sue!

Monday, July 7th, 2008

An angry “Solopreneur,” Adryenn Ashley, recently demanded a jury trial because Yelp deleted her account. She feels “public humiliation, liable, and defamation,” so somebody at Yelp is going to pay.   

What’s that? The class-action lawsuit is only just being developed right now, per Yelp-Sucks.com?

Perhaps IHateYelp.com could help get this suit off of the ground? Uh oh, apparently ‘Public’ online spaces don’t carry speech, rights. That could be a problem.

Let us rue for the happy days, back in ought-five, when Yelpers could celebrate their success without fear of lawsuits. Thusly:
