SAN FRANCISCO – A Texas consumer alleges a San Francisco-based corporation that operates a mobile application service sent her unwanted text messages.
Ana Rehmet filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on June 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Gatherapp Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered damages from receiving several unwanted text messages from the defendant inviting her to join the app. The plaintiff holds Gatherapp Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly sent a text message to the plaintiff's cellular telephone without her permission. She alleges she believes the defendant obtained her number by taking contacts from phones owned by third-parties.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages, actual and punitive damages, permanent injunction, all legal fees, and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Geoff J. Spreter and Benjamin D. Petiprin of Spreter & Petiprin APC in Coronado.
