Has a review hurt your feelings? Then why not sue?

This is rather worrying: according to Slugger O’Toole, a Belfast restaurant successfully sued the Irish News for libel after the paper printed a negative review. If Slugger’s commenters are correct, the jury didn’t find the paper guilty because the review was factually incorrect; it found it guilty because the review hurt the restaurateur’s feelings.
