Yelp was ordered to remove a defamatory review, but it won’t do that without a fight

The short version: After a California attorney sued her client over a negative Yelp review, the review was found to be defamatory. But in an unusual move, a court ordered Yelp itself to remove the review. That ruling tests the limits of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which prevents online platforms from behind held liable for most content posted by users.
