Wiggin Out Store Owner Must Pay $24,000 After Wigging Out at Wig Customer Online

Not the wig in question
The owner of a Newport Beach wig store was reportedly ordered by an Orange County judge to pay $24,000 to a "disgruntled customer" she trashed online.

After Cheryl Sanders complained about a Wiggin Out wig on RipoffReport.com, store owner Constance Walsh wigged out in rebuttal posts that falsely claimed the customer wrote a check on an unauthorized company account and took bribes at her job with the city of Anaheim.

But thank you and please come again!

The Register apparently broke this behind its paywall; I read the hilarious Newport Beach Patch follow-up.

It went something like this: Sanders in 2009 bought what Walsh's shop billed as a custom-made wig for her mother, who suffered from breast cancer. When Sanders found out the wig was not custom-made, she returned it via Federal Express. She then let her thoughts be known about Wiggin Out online, which prompted Walsh's sharp comebacks.

An OC small claims court judge on Monday ordered Walsh to pay Sanders the $24k for "intentional infliction of emotional distress and defamation."

How this case escaped judges Judy or Marilyn is the real mystery here.

This is not the first time Walsh has been sued by unsatisfied customers. Check out the horrible reviews on her yelp page.

Poor Wiggin Out Salon.But did you read about Cheryl Sanders? She is no angel. I looked it up http://www.fullertonsfuture.org/2011/subpoena-from-an-anaheim-employee/ .. read the last comment. http://www.orangejuiceblog.com/2012/04/anaheims-unhinged-litigious-bully-cheryl-sanders-an-oc-blogosphere-parable/ 

Looks like she had sued several others prior to this case and has several alias's and a past criminal history. What is wrong with the court system today? How sad. I had a friend that had her business sued from a couple that they found out sued others for a living. They lost because the couple knew the legal system and how to manipulate it.  Just sayin......... things are not as they seem.  :-) Poor Wiggin Out Salon poor Cheryl Sanders looks like both are losers in this case. Lawsuits are getting out of control and this is a good example of one. People cant we all just make an honest living and everyone needs to stay off the internet including me?????

Her business name is actually Wiggin Out Salon. I just looked up the case, it went to Civil Court at Superior Court of California, County of Orange, Case #30-2010-00435218-CU-DF-CJC.

If the reward was $24000, they must have sued for much more.
