Yelp to Occupy Offices at College Terrace Centre Project in Palo Alto

Yelp announced that the company will occupy all 38,980 square feet of office space planned for the mixed-use development at 2180 El Camino Real. That's nearly eight times the size of its existing Palo Alto outpost at 490 S. California Ave. In addition to the office space and market, the project will feature 5,580 square feet of ground-floor retail space, eight below-market-rate residential units and a 216-space underground parking garage. A landscaped plaza is also planned at the corner of Staunton Court and Oxford Avenue.

Brower Piven Files Class Action Lawsuit Against Yelp, Inc

The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven announced that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of purchasers of Yelp, Inc. common stock during the period between October 29, 2013 and April 3, 2014, inclusive. The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose during the Class Period the true nature of the so-called "firsthand" experiences and reviews appearing on the company's website, the robustness of its processes and algorithms purportedly designed to screen unreliable reviews, and the extent to which the company's forecasted financial growth prospects were reliant upon undisclosed business practices, including, but not limited to, requiring business customers to pay to suppress negative reviews. According to the complaint, following revelations of the company's business practices through a series of articles and disclosures beginning on March 31, 2014, the value of Yelp shares declined significantly.

Yelp Pays $450,000 to Settle US Regulator's Lawsuit

Yelp announced that it paid $450,000 to settle a US regulator's lawsuit accusing it of collecting names and e-mail addresses from children as young as 9 without the consent of their parents. The Federal Trade Commission said in its complaint that from 2009 to 2013, San Francisco-based Yelp violated privacy laws by gathering the information from children who signed up for an account and that the company failed to test the age-registration feature on its applications. Yelp said that the situation stemmed from a bug in its mobile registration process that let children under 13 sign up to post reviews. Yelp said it fixed the problem and closed affected users' accounts.
