top Virginia Woman Is Sued For $750,000 After Writing Scathing Yelp Review
Most states have anti-slapp laws on the books. California one is pretty nice, you can file a motion to dismiss, you don't even have to go through "discovery" and produce documents etc. You can also counter sue for legal fees. Sadly virginia doesn't have this type legislation but I think she can still file a motion to dismiss and hopefully get an understanding a judge.
