How important is tonight's debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump? Half of U.S. voters will rely on the debates to help them make their final decision. In some ways, it's a classic showdown between substance and style. Clinton is betting on her command over policy. Trump vanquished 16 opponents in the Republican primaries with – it wasn't charm exactly. He showed off the tools that made him the successful reality TV star that he is, with verbal attacks on Mexicans, Muslims and other candidates playing a key role.. Now he'll have to take that style into a one-on-one situation with Clinton. That's why this debate is expected to be a blockbuster for the television networks.

(Reuters) - In January 2013, an ex-client of the California personal injury lawyer Dawn Hassell posted a one-star review of Hassell's firm on Yelp, the online consumer site. The reviewer used a pseudonym, but Hassell figured out it was Ava Bird, whom she had represented briefly. Hassell tried to get Bird to change or take down the review, which the lawyer said was factually inaccurate and defamatory. When Bird doubled down, Hassell sued her in state court in San Francisco. In July 2013, Hassell won a default judgment against Bird, who did not appear in court to defend her supposedly defamatory statements.
