A Google+ review apparently rubbed a Naperville lawyer the wrong way, and now he's suing the man who penned it.
Attorney Paul Nordini filed the lawsuit in Will County court Wednesday. Nordini's suit accuses Naperville resident Joseph LaBarre of defaming him in his Google+ review.
LaBarre complained in his review about the allegedly "underhanded and deceitful way (Nordini) went about 'doing good'" for his client.
That "client" is presumably LaBarre's ex-wife, Danielle LaBarre, whom Nordini represented in her divorce from Joseph LaBarre.
"I agree that some people may find your anyway (sic) possible strategy a good way to screw their spouse but I assure anyone going through a divorce with children that it will only widen the gap of discontent between the two of you and have an overall negative effect on the relationship between both spouses and children for years to come," LaBarre wrote. "So I'll go ahead and give Mr. Nordini maybe the best possible endorsement his ethically shaky law firm has probably had and tell anyone who's really out to screw their spouse by any means possible this is their stop."
In his lawsuit, Nordini claimed the review has been "materially harmful to (his) reputation in the community" and that it has cost him and his firm, Nordini & Thompson, $10,000 a month in lost business. The law firm is listed as a plaintiff along with Nordini.
Nordini is seeking a $110,000 judgment—plus costs—against LaBarre. The lawsuit says he also wants an injunction ordering LaBarre to "remove his false statements from the Internet.
