LOS ANGELES – A Washington state man has filed a class action against a Southern California gym chain over calls and texts he alleges he received without his permission.
Wayne Hofstetter filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Jan. 17 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Gold's Gym Southern California Group alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in September 2016, he suffered damages from receiving several unwanted solicitation calls and texts from the defendant. The plaintiff holds Gold's Gym Southern California Group responsible because the defendant allegedly kept sending unsolicited texts to the plaintiff after he asked the contact to stop.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages, $1,500 in treble damages, injunctive relief, and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Ronald A. Marron of Law Offices of Ronald A. Marron in San Diego.
