Former SEC Attorney - Willie Briscoe and Powers Taylor LLP File a Class Action Lawsuit Against Yelp, Inc

Former United States Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Willie Briscoe, founder of The Briscoe Law Firm, PLLC, and the securities litigation firm of Powers Taylor LLP announced that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Yelp, Inc. and several officers and directors for acts taken during the period of October 29, 2013 to April 3, 2014. In the complaint, the defendants are alleged to have violated certain provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Specifically, the complaint alleges, among other things, that defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: a) Reviews on Yelp's website were not all authentic "firsthand" reviews; b) Algorithms purportedly designed to screen unreliable reviews did not comprehensively do so and the Company allowed such unreliable reviews to remain prominent while the Company tried to sell services designed to suppress negative reviews or make them go away; and c) In light of the above, the representations concerning the Company's current and future financial condition and prospects, and the extent to which they were reliant upon undisclosed business practices, did not have a reasonable basis. According to the complaint, when the truth regarding Yelp's business practices came to light, the Company's stock price dropped.
