NEWARK, N.J. (Legal Newsline) — An individual has filed a class action lawsuit against a social media platform, alleging it violates the New Jersey Truth-in-Consumer, Contract Warranty and Notice Act.

Jason Huhn filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all persons similarly situated on June 22 in Morris County Superior Court against Facebook Inc., alleging that the corporation requires the plaintiff and class members to agree to their conditions upon using Facebook, a demand that purportedly violates certain provisions of the law.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages as the result of being required to agree to Facebook's statement of rights and responsibilities. The plaintiff holds Facebook Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly required plaintiff and users to agree to their user conditions.

Facebook also has submitted a notice of removal that transferred this case from federal to state court.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants. He is represented by Jeremy M. Glapion of The Glapion Law Firm LLC in Wall, New Jersey.
