A New York City lawyer who filed a court petition over a three-word Google review apparently got results, though it wasn’t through the court system.
Lawyer Donald Tobias had filed a petition asking a judge to order disclosure of the reviewer who gave him one star and simply wrote, “It was horrible.” Tobias had suspected the author was referring to a different Donald Tobias who died after allegedly throwing himself in front of a train.
After media reports on his case, the bad reviews piled up, the Wall Street Journal Law Blog reports. “Never worked with him,” one reviewer wrote, “but saw how he spends his time trying to uncover anonymous reviewers in order to sue them for libel. I would give 0 stars if I could.”
Late last Thursday, however, the bad reviews were gone, along with the initial “it was horrible” review. When informed of the development by the Law Blog, Tobias said he hoped the reviews don’t resurface.
“Somebody was doing their job and took it down. Good for them,” he said.
