SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) – A Montgomery, Alabama consumer alleges a San Francisco e-commerce website operator sent her text messages without her consent.
Sharon Motley, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated filed a complaint, on April 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against ContextLogic Inc. over alleged violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in February 2018, she received text messages from defendant advertising its Wish.com website. She alleges she never provided her express written consent to receive the messages and that the messages caused her to be "distracted and aggravated."
The plaintiff holds ContextLogic Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly engaged in sending en masse text messaging to individuals using an automatic telephone dialing system without obtaining prior express or written consent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages amount to $500 for each and every text message that violated the TCPA, treble damages of up to $1,500, award attorneys' fees costs, and other relief as the court deems appropriate. She is represented by David W. Hall and Frank S. Hedin of Hedin Hall LLP in San Francisco, California.
