NEW YORK (Legal Newsline) — A Michigan consumer has filed a class action lawsuit against a communications app business, alleging negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.
Jeremy Auman filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, April 20 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Confide Inc. alleging failure to deliver the security features of its app.
According to the complaint, Auman suffered monetary damages from being misled into purchasing a falsely advertised app that promised it could protect his privacy. The plaintiff alleges Confide made false claims regarding the level of security the app could provide to consumers.
Auman seeks trial by jury, actual and punitive damages, restitution, injunctive relief, attorney fees, pre- and post-judgment interest and all relief the court deems reasonable and just. He is represented by attorneys John C. Re of Kurzman Eisenberg Corbin & Lever, LLP in White Plains, New York, and by Benjamin H. Richman of Edelson PC in Chicago.
