Consumer Review Website Wins 230 Dismissal in Fourth Circuit–Nemet Chevrolet v.

29 12 2009

By Eric Goldman

Nemet Chevrolet Ltd. v., Inc., No. 08-2097 (4th Cir. Dec. 29, 2009)


Citing 47 USC 230, today the Fourth Circuit upheld a 12(b)(6) dismissal of defamation and related claims against a consumer review website. This case is noteworthy because the court rejected some common allegations that plaintiffs make to evade 230, so this case may help defendants get 12(b)(6) motions to dismiss more easily.
