SAN FRANCISCO — A Florida woman is suing Uber Technologies, alleging the defendant invaded her privacy by violating telephone harassment statutes.
Valerie Marie Moore of Duval County, Florida, filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, July 11 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Uber Technologies, Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protections Act.
According to the complaint, since June 2014, Moore has received dozens of text messages from Uber, which has caused her to suffer financial damages, aggravation and invasion of privacy and has caused her to spend monies to pay her network service provider.
The plaintiff alleges Uber sent multiple automated SMS messages to her cellular number without her prior express consent or prior written consent.
Moore seeks a trial by jury, declaration the defendant’s actions violated the law, statutory damages of $500 for each violation of the TCPA, treble damages of up to $1,500 for each call, attorney fees and legal costs, plus other relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by attorney Lesley E. Weaver of Block & Leviton LLP in Oakland.
