SAN FRANCISCO – A Washington, D.C. individual has filed a class-action lawsuit against a social media network alleging it sends unsolicited texts.
Christine Holt filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on April 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Facebook Inc., citing violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, between March and April 20, she received promotional text messages on her mobile phone from the defendant asking her to post status updates. The plaintiff holds Facebook Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly sent promotional unsolicited text messages to plaintiff without prior consent and that she is not a Facebook user.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual and statutory damages, require the defendant to disgorge any funds acquired as a result of its allegedly unlawful practices, restitution, order the defendant to cease all unsolicited text message activities, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Todd Logan of Edelson PC in San Francisco.
