The owner of a New East Side short-term corporate housing property near Chicago's Lakefront has sued two people involved with a Chicago-based sports and entertainment publication, demanding they pay at least $150,000 for statements made on Yelp and to the Better Business Bureau which the property owner said libeled her and her business. On Sept. 3, Francine Manilow, owner of the Manilow Suites, filed the complaint in Cook County Circuit Court against Kenneth Payne and Kimberly Katz.
