PHOENIX (Legal Newsline) - A Michigan man is suing GoDaddy, a technology and domain marketplace provider, alleging it sent unsolicited text messages.

John Herrick, of Troy, Michigan, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit Jan. 28 in U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona against GoDaddy.com LLC, alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

The suit alleges GoDaddy sent commercial text messages without prior written consent and without providing proper disclosures, in violation of the TCPA.  As a result, the complaint states, Herrick and other class members were subjected to aggravation and an invasion of privacy, and also incurred costs for the receipt of such spam.

Herrick and others in the class seek an injunction, statutory damages, attorney fees and costs. They are represented by attorney Trinette G. Kent of Kent Law Offices in Phoenix, and by attorneys Phillip A. Bock, Tod A. Lewis and James M. Smith of Bock & Hatch in Chicago.
