Bellaire lawyer Michael W. Weston and his firm, Weston & Associates, have filed a defamation suit alleging a “false review” about the firm was posted online on Citysearch.com. They seek more than $1.25 million in damages.
Weston and his firm are suing a paralegal who formerly worked at Weston & Associates and a man who has her same last name. The plaintiffs allege in the petition — filed March 3 in Harris County’s 133rd District Court — that the Nov. 22, 2010, “fraudulent posting” on Citysearch.com was accessible through a Google search. The further allege the review resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars of lost business, because it was “made public to thousands of potential clients since Nov. 22, 2010.” [See the petition.]
