Va. Court Tosses Out Order to Remove Online Reviews

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- The state's highest court is reversing a judge's order that a northern Virginia woman remove negative online reviews of a home contractor.

The Virginia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union and Public Citizen said Wednesday that the Supreme Court of Virginia has thrown out the preliminary injunction issued in Fairfax County Circuit Court. The groups had appealed the judge's order saying it violated free speech rights.

Jane Perez is being sued over comments she posted on the Internet regarding Dietz Development LLC. Last month a judge ruled that Perez could not imply that the contractor stole items from her home. And she is barred from repeating them in new posts. The contractor is claiming the reviews were false and cost him business.
