MOBILE — An Alabama man is suing Godaddy.com, alleging violation of telephone harassment statutes.

Jason Bennett of Baldwin County filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, June 20 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Alabama against Godaddy.com, LLC, alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. 

According to the complaint, Bennett received more than five telephone calls from GoDaddy reminding him the service that he had previously used had expired. These calls were placed without the defendant's consent, the suit says. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendant made these telemarketing calls intentionally, willfully and/or knowingly, and not even for emergency purposes.

Bennett seeks a trial by jury, an order certifying this action to be a proper class action, $500 to $1,500 in statutory damages for each call that violated the TCPA, injunctive relief prohibiting such TCPA violations by the defendant in the future, and other relief to which the plaintiff and class members are entitled. He is represented by attorney John R. Cox of Spanish Fort, Alabama.

U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Alabama Case number 1:16-cv-00291-N
