We had a bad dealing with a contractor we worked with on website design project for a client. They never completed the project but we offered to pay them the remaining balance just for access to the site so we could finish it. Instead they wanted us to pay that balance and a $2,500 penalty. We refused and wrote a review on Yelp detailing our experience. The business owner threatened us saying he if didn't remove the review, he would start a campaign to ensure we had to change our company name. The next day fake reviews on multiple websites popped up for our business. I have taken screenshots of these reviews. Do we have a case against him for libel, defamation, or something similar? If so we would like to explore our options.
