SAN JOSE – A Wisconsin consumer has filed a class-action suit against a Santa Clara app developer over allegations it sent him unwanted text messages.
Nathan Gergetz filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose Division against Telenav Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in July, he was sent several unsolicited text messages on his phone by the defendant in regards to its Scout GPS app. The plaintiff holds Telenav Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly kept on sending unsolicited text messages to plaintiff despite him sending a reply to opt out.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual and statutory damages, injunction against the defendant, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Richard T. Drury and Rebecca Davis of Lozeau Drury LLP in Oakland.
