THE BOSTON GLOBE | Could a Negative Yelp Review Lead to a Lawsuit? | August 27, 2015 | A Charleston, S.C. steakhouse asked diners in large parties to sign contracts holding them legally liable for any negative reviews posted online. But, Clinical Fellow Andy Sellars told the Boston Globe’s Stephanie McFeeters that such a contract was meaningless “watered-down legalese.” Though the increase in online reviews like Yelp has changed the way customers perceive many restaurants and businesses for better or worse, Sellars pointed out that as long as a review is a statement of opinion, it is protected by the First Amendment.
