eBay Seller Who Sued Customers For Bad Feedback Has To Pay Legal Fees

Let this be a warning to any other asshats out there that try to pull this kind of crap. A twenty thousand dollar slap on the wrist ought to serve as a reminder that consumers have the right to leave negative feedback.

You may remember that back in 2013, an eBay seller filed a lawsuit against a customer who left him accurate negative feedback, claiming that he hadn’t actually read his own suit when the company’s actions led to Internet backlash. Now the case has finally been resolved, with a judge ordering the seller to pay $19,000 in attorneys’ fees to the local lawyers who took the customer’s case pro bono.
