LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) - A California man is suing Victoria's Secret, alleging it sent unauthorized text message advertisements.
Michael Hannegan, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit Jan. 26 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Victoria's Secret, alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, Victoria's Secret engaged in unlawful advertising by sending unauthorized text message advertisements to cell phones of consumers throughout the country, including Hannegan and the other class members. As a result, the plaintiff and class members suffered an invasion of privacy and have incurred costs for the receipt of such wireless spam, the suit says.
Hannegan and others in the class seek an injunction, statutory or actual damages, plus attorney fees and costs. They are represented by attorneys Joseph R. Manning Jr., Michael J. Manning and Phillip B. Nghiem of The Law Offices of Joseph R. Manning Jr. in Newport Beach, California.
