LOS ANGELES – The owners of Baskin-Robbins are accused of sending unwanted text messages to a Los Angeles County consumer.
Jalen Epps filed a complaint on Dec. 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Dunkin' Brands Group Inc. and Does 1-10 citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered damages and an invasion of privacy from receiving unwanted text messages from Baskin-Robbins on her cellular telephone. The plaintiff holds Dunkin' Brands Group Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to contact the plaintiff and continued to send texts after she withdrew consent.
The plaintiff seeks statutory damages, injunctive relief, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Scott J. Ferrell and Victoria C. Knowles of Pacific Trial Attorneys in Newport Beach.
