Yelp Reviewer Must Pay Contractor $1,000

Be careful how you word a negative review on Yelp, it could end up costing you big money.

"Terms such as ‘scam,’ ‘con artist’ and ‘robs’ imply actions approaching criminal wrongdoing rather than someone who failed to live up to the terms of a contract," Straniere wrote. "They were personal in their invective and were designed to impugn his integrity and business practices with the intent to damage his business reputation," the judge said, ordering Fanelli to pay Gardiner $1000.
