Yelp (YELP -4.1%) closed lower, possibly on news a Virginia woman has been hit with a $750K defamation suit from a contractor thanks to a critical Yelp review. A judge has ordered comments from the reviewer suggesting the contractor stole jewelry be removed. Legal experts argue such comments aren't legally protected, unlike opinions on service quality.
