Yelp Inc. v. Ken Paxton

Yelp Inc. has filed a lawsuit against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton seeking declaratory and injunctive relief. The lawsuit arises from a dispute over Yelp's publication of truthful information about crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) on its platform. Yelp discovered that some CPCs were misleading consumers seeking abortion care by diverting them away from medical providers. In August 2022, Yelp published a notice informing consumers that CPCs "typically provide limited medical services and may not have licensed medical professionals onsite." The Attorney General demanded that Yelp remove the notice, claiming it was misleading. Although Yelp updated the notice to state that CPCs do not offer abortions or referrals to abortion providers, the Attorney General still intends to prosecute Yelp under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act. Yelp argues that the Attorney General's actions violate the First Amendment and seeks a declaration that the threatened prosecution is unconstitutional, an injunction to prevent the prosecution, and attorneys' fees.
