Hotel guest sued for posting negative review

  • A guest who claimed that the owner at the Ashley Inn in Lincoln, Oregon, smoked weed and that the person at the front desk was having phone sex, is being sued by the hotel. 

    The person under the name "12Kelly" posted this review on TripAdvisor and the hotel has now filed a $74,500 lawsuit against him. The Oregonian notes that the offensive review has been removed and the rest of them are quite positive. 

    Court of Appeals in the region recently ruled that offensive reviewers could be sued by businesses and the lawsuit states that the defendant made these statements "deliberately, maliciously, and willfully."
