Yelp Prevails In Lawsuit Over Authenticity Of Its Reviews

Plaintiffs had accused Yelp of manipulating reviews in an attempt to coerce businesses to buy advertisements, but the federal judge handling the case wasn’t convinced.

A Yelp spokeswoman said the company "has repeatedly stated that it does not manipulate reviews in favor of advertisers or against non-advertisers, and the court saw through plaintiffs' attempts to cast these statements as false."
