Chris Norberg left a negative review on Yelp after he got into a billing dispute with chiropractor Steven Biegel. Instead of quietly fuming like most people who get bad reviews on Yelp do, Biegel sued Norberg for defamation. Can you really sue someone for a negative online review?
The excellent blog, Passive Aggressive Notes has a submission from a reader who rejected his chiropractor. Clay decided not to go back after the doctor refused to show him his x-rays unless Clay attended a seminar about payment plans and treatment options. A few days later he got a note that said:
Dr. Kirtland Speaks, the chiropractor who’s suing Louisiana for his right to telemarket car accident victims using their phone numbers found in public accident reports, well, he’s moving from Texas to Louisiana and he’s got a hydrocullator or two to get rid of.
Yesterday we told you about Dr. Kirtland Speaks, a back-cracker who’s suing for his right to telemarket to accident victims, using phone numbers from public accident reports. He’s alleging that preventing this marketing plan violates the First Amendment.
Thanks to a chiropractor, ambulance chasers won’t even need a good pair of running shoes.
