Blood on the cellar floor - Robert Parker sues Antonio Galloni

Blood on the cellar floor - Robert Parker sues Antonio Galloni | Wine in the World | Scoop.it
The Wine Advocate files suit against Antonio Galloni for "Fraud, Breach of Contractual Obligations and the intentional and unjustifiable withholding of tasting notes and articles."
David Swaddle's insight:

Is that the dull thud of egos clashing I hear?

 

Wine power-house Robert Parker is suing his ex-contributor Antonio Galloni for withholding work. Galloni claims that it was incomplete when he left and wouldn't do justice to the region.

 

With the background of a multi-million dollar takeover of Parker's Wine Advocate publicastion, and Galloni moving on to set up his own competitor, there's a lot at stake here.

 

This article is well worth a read, providing background to the entertaining fight to follow. However it works out, I predict blood on the cellar floor.

Panned Restaurant Wins Suit Against Newspaper

Panned Restaurant Wins Suit Against Newspaper | Wine in the World | Scoop.it
An Australian restaurant that closed six months after a scalding review has won a defamation suit against the newspaper that published it.

 

WTF?? The legal system is protecting restaurants against bad reviews!

 

What next? Will I be banned from calling most Pinot Grigios bland alcohol delivery devices? I'll update you if I'm sued.
