Examples of Online Business Defamation Cases
In 2006, $11.3 million was awarded to a Florida woman for a defamation lawsuit against a client who posted negative messages about her parent referral service. The plaintiff pursued the case even though she knew the defendant would not be able to pay the award. Rather than focus on the monetary award, she wanted to clear her name.
A Texas couple won $13.8 million in a defamation suit fighting back against anonymous commenters on Topix.com. The posters had said they were drug dealers, molesters, and sexual deviants. Though they were cleared of all charges, the online attacks didn’t stop. As a result, the couple had to move out of town and lost their business.
Neither party won a 2014 defamation case in which a contractor’s client wrote bad reviews on Yelp and Angie’s List. The contractor retaliated by lashing out with his own accusations in response to the reviews. Ultimately, a jury found that they were both guilty of defamation, and neither would receive damages.
A doctor in Minnesota lost his online defamation case against a patient’s family that left unflattering online reviews about him. The Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that none of the statements qualified as defamation. In this case, online reputation management would have been a smarter alternative to legal action.

Are you thinking of filing an online defamation lawsuit? First, you’ll need to determine if you are dealing with defamation or just an unflattering opinion. To win a case, you must provethat public comments aren’t only false, but a statement of fact.
A review that says, “I was served a moldy muffin at The Flower Cafe” is a statement of fact, and if that statement is not true, it’s defamation. However, a review that states, “The server at The Flower Cafe was rude” is simply too vague and opinionated to qualify as defamation.
Additionally, the statement must be public. Since most damaging statements are made on review sites or social media, they would count as public. But a private conversation between the business owner and individual does not count. However, “public” does not have to be widespread. If someone makes a false, damaging statement to a third party, it could be defamation.
In addition to these requirements, there are different standards for public and private figures, as well as knowledge that the statement is false. For specific details, it’s best to contact a qualified attorney.
