Spencer v. Glover, 2017 UT App 69 (Apr. 20, 2017)
Apr 20, 2017
The court of appeals affirmed the dismissal of an attorney’s defamation complaint against a former client who posted an unfavorable review online. The court analyzed the review in detail and concluded that the majority of the statements in it could not be objectively verified, which weighed in favor of the court’s ultimate determination that the unfavorable online review expressed an opinion and was not defamatory under Utah law.
