The Electric Commentary

Enjoy your meal...

because if you don't, we'll sue you. A Dallas restaurant owner is suing a Dallas Morning News restaurant critic for a bad review. His restaurant was awarded 4 out of 5 stars and the comments included some mistaken ingredients. The lawsuit alleges fraud, malice, defamation and an "attempt to cripple the business of one of Dallas' finest new restaurants." I wonder if this will open the door for other suits against critics. Roger Ebert beware. Maybe customers could sue restaurants for fraudulent menu descriptions. The Dallas Morning news should consider a countersuit.
