Couple Sued For $1M For Negative Yelp Review

Remember the couple that were sued over a negative Yelp review back in February (link)? Well, that lawsuit was dropped but, just as we predicted back then, the company is now suing for up to $1 million because of all the negative press it received over the initial lawsuit.

A couple months back, we told you of the Texas couple that was being sued for a few thousand dollars by a petsitter over a negative Yelp review that allegedly violated a "non-disparagement" clause in the petsitter’s contract. That suit was quickly dropped, but a new complaint filed by the petsitting business has ramped up the allegations and the dollar amount, now seeking between $200,000 to $1 million in damages.
