McKee v. Laurion, A11-1154 (Minn. Jan. 30, 2013)

Dr. McKee treated Kenneth Laurion. Unhappy with those interactions, Kenneth’s son Dennis critiqued Dr. McKee on various doctor review websites. Dr. McKee sued Dennis for defamation (and related claims) based on 11 different statements. The district court granted summary judgment to Dennis on all counts, but the appellate court revived the lawsuit on 6 statements.

The Minnesota Supreme Court reversed the appellate court on those 6 statements, concluding that Dennis isn’t liable for any of the statements.
