According to the article it was appellate court already: Nonetheless, the appellate ruling in favor of Yelp and Ma on all claims, and on Jing for the emotional distress claim, set the stage for all three to argue that Wong owed them attorneys' fees.
Wong sued, even after 2 previous cases from 2 dentists (ha) were lost.. judge should have saved everyone their money and dismissed original case with costs.
Of course now wong is suing for libel.. i'll have to see if i can find the case and claim to see the review as it mentions mercury.. The only way i could see Wong winning is if Ma lied about the use of mercury filling when Jang didn't use mercury. Otherwise if Jang did use mercury the case will be thrown out or become REALLY expensive trying to prove the safety of mercury.. It is after all Ma's right to express her concerns over the safety of mercury - especially when there are non mercury filling based alternatives (or perhaps she wasn't explained the alternatives as she should have been..).
The ongoing ruling with mercury is "Mercury/Amalgam Fillings We do not use nor recommend mercury fillings. However, the issue over their use and safety are not clear and is still being debated. Each person has the right to decide "
hard to call making that personal decision or reviewing a dentist as negative for using mercury in poor light as libel..
but again.. i'm just going by the tiny info we have :)
