Beaverton pastor sues blogger

May 16, 2012

Beaverton church-blogger case goes national!

A local Oregon pastor is suing former members for a half million for their stinging review of their church on their blog. The former members said the church acted cult-like, was “creepy” and used “control tactics” and posted the reviews on Dex and Google review pages. The case is putting the test to free speech and libel. The pastor says its defamation. The blogger said,”I thought, I’m just going to post a review, We do it with restaurants and hotels and whatnot, and I thought, why not do it with this church?”

The case has attracted national attention.
