Georges Perrier Sues Blogger

Story here http://articles.philly.com/2011-09-27...

the offending blog is here http://staphmeal.com/

I think Georges made a bad move here by suing the blogger- it will only serve to publicize the offending blog

something interesting in this blog that I did not know- apparently restauranteurs like Stephen Starr and Jose Garces take a percentage of their waitstaff's tips to pay credit card fees!

  1. This practice has been done for decades everywhere. This is not a new issue. George has not filed suit yet and has every right to do so. Writing that someone is a racist will invite that sort of reaction. This bloggers 15 minutes is up. He is quite a sad, pathetic individual who is obviously in need of help.

      tilemaker, actually the news is reporting that Georges actually has filed a lawsuit. My point is that in doing so, he will be merely adding more publicity to the allegations that have been made against him. See this link http://www.philly.com/philly/columnis...

      With all the problems Georges Perrier has had in the PR department, the decision to sue seems illadvised.

      Googling Georges Perrier, the top 4 news search results now report on this story.

      The blogger has a giant picture on the front page of today's Metro. http://www.metro.us/philadelphia/loca...

    2. I'm from the Philly area and never heard of this blog, the Perrier lawsuit will defiitely give this guys the 15 minutes he is looking for.

      I initially thought this would be because of a bad review, but this blog post is just heresy. It is pretty slanderous. I think the writer just wanted attention and now he got it,

        I've given his blog a skim, out of curiousity. First amendment or not, he really should watch what he says, because some of his blogs border on threats to chefs and restaurant owners.
