Woman sued after negative Yelp review

MARYLAND

The trial started Monday under the claim that Perez defamed Dietz's business with her one-star review. Perez hired Dietz's company, Dietz Development LLC, in 2011 to paint, refinish floors, do electrical, plumbing and general.

While the lawsuit moves forward a judge has ruled Perez must delete some of her reviews and can't repeat them in new posts. Her lawyer calls it a violation of free speech.
