Yelp sues law firm for alleged fake review posts

User rating and review site Yelp has filed a lawsuit against a San Diego law firm for "try[ing] to game the system by stacking the deck in their favor with planted or fake reviews," arguing that such reviews are "harmful to customers."

According to the complaint,

The McMillan Law Group's efforts to mislead consumers are particularly brazen and disappointing given they have targeted some of the most vulnerable consumers of all - individuals who may be facing bankruptcy and who are looking for potential legal representation.
The lawsuit accuses the firm of breach of contract, intentional interference with contract, unfair competition, and false advertising.
