I have someone that has put up a review online,on Yelp.Yelp took it down,and he put it right back up.And now Yelp Are leaving it up.He was not involved and I can prove it?He has left a review for someone else,I dealt only with the lady that brought the car to me.I have never spoken to him,met him.and he has never been on my property.His comments are untrue,I have signed invoices to show not only did she ok the work,but also paid for it on her credit personal credit card...It's malicious,libel and completely false,not to mention very damaging to my reputation and cause me a lot of lost businessThe review violates there policies,and I have the email to show they stated that,I also have the email requesting work from the young lady who brought the car in....If anything he should be thanking me for giving him a huge discount on the part,at almost cost I sold it to her,and she ok'd that....review is *********Automotive,I think not only is he libel for his comments,but Yelp is for taking it down then leaving it back up....One final note Howard O. a long time customer of mine had his 5 star review taken down in Minutes of posting.......I won't buy advertising from them despite numerous attempts to sell it to me,I think perhaps not buying advertising is detrimental to my cause.....Thank you,***********

I have been slandered by name in an online discussion group,

I have been slandered by name in an online discussion group, in a manner that definitely is injurious to my career. Do I have any recourse?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state you're in?Customer: I have just moved to Arizona, but the slander involves the period of my residence in Idaho.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I have just become aware of the problem, though I expected it.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Situation: In 2002 I published a satirical novel in which the characters used realistic language (they swore a lot) and got themselves into all sorts of problems because of sexual infidelity. No sexual activity was described. In 2016 I resigned under pressure from my teaching position in a Catholic school because a dissident parents' group found out about my supposedly evil book. The headmaster defended me to no avail. My understanding is that a homosexuality scandal broke out in the school shortly after my departure, and this has increased the furor. The book is not pornographic, and the claim that it is could be injurious to my current journalism career and certainly would eliminate any further work in the educational field.

I have a question regarding an auto accident personal injury

I have a question regarding an auto accident personal injury settlement. The insurance company sent a settlement offer (very low) I then called and told them what I thought was fair and they raised their offer $1800. The problem is I do not think that is fair. I've done research online and used the 1.5-5 multiplier and their final offer is lower than what it would be if I used a 1 multiplier. Their client rear-ended me and I hurt my knee. I had a CT Scan and Xray which did not show a break or tear. However my normal activities have been affected by this injury. I used to walk three miles everyday, I can barely walk one. I used to wear heels everyday all day and now can barely make it through half a day without putting on my slippers. My knee gives me problems in the cold and with activity still today. My medical bills total $4,090.00 and lost wages total $960.00. I was in treatment for nearly 6weeks. It has been 9 months since the accident which occurred on October 21, 2015. The insurance first offer was $7300 and then after I called to decline it they raised it to $9,000. I am just wanting to know if this is a fair offer. I feel my pain and suffering will increase as I get older. I've been diagnosed with anxiety and I have had to raise my dosage of insomnia meds because of what my lifestyle has been limited to since my knee injury.
