Intellectual Property Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer
My husband and I are being threaten a lawsuit for a negative Yelp review from one of our wedding vendors. We believe what we wrote in our review to be honest account and experience of our entire experience leading up to our wedding. The vendor has threatened to sue that if we don't remove the negative review by end of day (that was a few days ago), he will have his lawyer contact us. This business already received several negative reviews (aside from our own). Our friends (after reading their business's reviews) all believe that this business is clearly has no case/basis to sue and just using the legal threats to scared us to remove our review. However, should we get an lawyer ready at this time, in case we end up getting sued? What else can we do going forward to better protect and prepare in case we do? Thank you for your time. YL
We have been in conspondence with 2 other 'negetive Yelp reviewers' and are considering joining forces on a countersuit. To be honest, I rather just leave everything alone (assuming we are not presented with a law suit). However, if the Vendor ends up presenting a lawsuit, is it to our best interest to 'join forces' with the other reviewers? If so, what are the pros/cons of doing so? If we (by ourselves or joining forces), by some chance, end up going to court, what kind of legal/courts fees could we be looking at?
