Florida residents allege Get Together sent unwanted texts soliciting app

ORLANDO, Fla. (Legal Newsline) – Two Florida residents allege a mobile application company sent them spam text messages without their consent.

Heather Mellichamp and John Morgan filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on Sept. 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida against Get Together Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they received at least two spam text messages from the agents of the defendant since July in its attempt to solicit consumers to download its mobile app and have suffered from invasion of their privacy, trespassing on chattel and loss of use of their cellular telephones.

The plaintiffs hold Get Together Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly utilized an automatic dialing and/or SMS texting system for non-emergency purposes and sent unsolicited text messages to the plaintiffs without express consent.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant for statutory damages, injunctive relief, and other relief the court deems just. They are represented by Edmund A. Normand and Jacob L. Phillips of Normand PLLC in Orlando, Florida.
