Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"Yelp posts false and misleading information. Reviews are not truthful, provably false, and one reveiw simply says that all the good reviews must be false because... everyone is lying. Yelp refused to respond to reasonable requests and refused to remove the advertising completely, thus maligning and injuring Dr. Gregory T. Fisher, FACS in his profession.

Should we file legal action immediately?

Thank you.

  • This is an extremely common complaint on this site, as well as others. However, Yelp itself, as well as other third party review sites, are not responsible or liable for the postings of reviews on their site. In this situation, if you feel that the claims are easy to respond to, you can file a rebuttal or disclaimer to the reviews. If you feel that they are potentially false, misleading, or malicious in nature, you could potentially have some rights against the posters themselves, but not against Yelp. It also seems that it is near impossible to withdrawn company information from the website. Hopefully at some point, the company will realize that something is not working in its business practice and amend it, but until then, filing disclaimers and looking at the posters themselves seem to be the options.
