LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A California consumer claims that an Ohio corporation invaded his privacy with multiple unsolicited text messages.
John Simonich filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Aug. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against OnShift Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning on Dec. 30, 2016, he received unsolicited text messages on his cellular telephone from the defendant. He alleges he replied "stop" to opt out of the messages, but received another message on Jan. 3 and continued to receive more messages.
The plaintiff holds OnShift Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly sent text messages to the plaintiff in an attempt to get the plaintiff to attend a medical appointment he did not schedule and sent the messages without his consent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual and statutory damages, injunction, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Afshin Siman in Los Angeles and Blake J. Dugger of Law Offices of Stefan Coleman PA in Phoenix.
