LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – Two Los Angeles County, California residents have filed suit over texts they received from a restaurant.
Jeff Dillon and Nolan Hoffman filed a complaint on Dec. 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Wingstop Restaurants Inc. and Does 1-10 for alleged violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that in 2015, both opted in to receive texts from the defendant for promotional offers. The suit states Dillon received 48 subsequent texts and plaintiff Hoffman received 37 subsequent texts from the defendant. The plaintiffs claim the texts were unwanted and were allegedly sent via an automatic telephone dialing system.
The plaintiffs hold Wingstop Restaurants Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly engaged in a pattern and practice of extensive unlawful and fraudulent conduct related to advertising via text-messaging and failed to obtain the legally required prior written consent prior to sending a barrage of text messages.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment for actual economic and non-economic damages, exemplary and punitive damages, costs, attorney's fees, and for such other and further relief as the court deem just and proper. They are represented by Brandon J. Anand of Anand Law PC in Los Angeles.
