Description: Susan Scheff and Parents Universal Experts, Inc. sued Carey Bock on a defamation theory for the posting of defamatory statements about them on an Internet bulletin board viewed by parents of trouble teens. Brock sought the help of Scheff and Parents Universal for help in finding an educational consultant who could get her sons out of a school affiliated with the Utah-based World Wide Association of Specialty Programs and Schools. Bock accused Scheff and her company of being "crooks," "con artists" and "frauds" who "exploited families" and placed them in "risky" and "possibly abusive" programs. Bock posted the statements after Scheff refused to help her contact a minor who claimed that he had been sexually abused in a World Wide affiliate school for a documentary about the schools.

Outcome: Plaintiffs' verdict for $11.3 million.
