This isn’t the first time that Yelp made it to the courtroom. There are countless cases in the past where small business owners have claimed that Yelp isn’t playing fair.
Yelp is claiming that the reviews that appear on the McMillan Law Group Yelp profile were fabricated by employees or contractors of the law firm.
Yelp is asking for $25,000 in damages. It is suing for supposed breach of contract, unfair competition, and false advertising.
Earlier this year Yelp tried to sue BuyYelpReview.com for allegedly producing fake reviews. A site like BuyYelpReview.com is much more blatant about what they do while McMillan is just a small business owner that may or may not have created fake reviews on Yelp.
