This is the first case I’ve seen where someone sued another person for making a false claim on the internet…and won. Here a lawyer represented someone in their divorce. The client was unhappy with the lawyer and went on an online rant. The problem was that the rant was full of lies, so the lawyer sued for defamation. The lawyer won at trial and on appeal…she got $350,000 in damages. Yikes! If you want to read the decision, you could find it here.
