LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles County consumer claims that a safe driving service unlawfully sent him text messages.
Payton filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on
March 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of
Drive Safe Ride Safe LLC and Does 1 through 10
citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the
complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in September 2016, he suffered
damages from receiving several unwanted text messages on his cellular
telephone from the defendants. He alleges he was never a customer of the
defendants and never provided his number. The plaintiff holds Drive Safe
Ride Safe LLC and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants
allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to send text
messages to the plaintiff's phone.
The plaintiff requests a trial
by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages, injunctive relief, $1,500
in statutory damages and any other relief as the court deems just. He
is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Meghan E. George and Adrian R. Bacon
of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills.
