LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles County resident alleges a Kentucky corporation continues to send her text messages after she revoked her consent to receive them.
Victoria Kissel filed a complaint on Nov. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Churchill Downs Inc. and Does 1-10 citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she consented to receive text messages from the defendants and later withdrew consent. The plaintiff holds Churchill Downs Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to send text messages to plaintiff's cellular telephone and continued to do so after she asked for the messages to stop.
The plaintiff seeks $500 in statutory damages, $1,500 in statutory damages, injunctive relief, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems. She is represented by Scott J. Ferrell and Victoria C. Knowles of Pacific Trial Attorneys APC in Newport Beach.
