Stockholders Can’t Sue Yelp Because Of Fake Reviews (Forbes Cross-Post)

29 12 2016

Are there fake user reviews on Yelp? Sure–Yelp freely admits it. Nevertheless, plaintiffs have attempted a variety of legal theories to hold Yelp legally responsible for those fake reviews. Recently, a federal court shut down one of those lawsuits, holding that the presence of fake reviews on the site didn’t create securities fraud.

The Case

The judge initially dismissed the plaintiffs’ complaint in April but gave the plaintiffs a chance to try again, which they did.


Case citation: Curry v. Yelp, No. 14-cv-03547-JST (N.D. Cal. Nov. 24, 2015)
