Dave Schumaker Julian McMillan wants nothing to do with Yelp.

He runs a small law firm in San Diego, California, focusing on bankruptcy law.

And yet his business, like many others, has an entry on the reviews site. But on Tuesday, McMillan was served with a lawsuit from Yelp, alleging breach of contract, intentional interference with contract, unfair competition, and false advertising. In short, McMillan is being sued over supposed false Yelp reviews posted from 2010 to 2012.

The lawsuit was filed in late August 2013. “It has no merit,” he told Ars. “I assure you I never asked anyone to do that.” 1
