SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) – A San Francisco County resident alleges an indoor cycling workout business sent him text messages without his permission.
Michael Righetti, on behalf of himself and all similarly situated persons, filed a complaint on Dec. 17 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Flywheel Sports Inc. and Does 1-10 over alleged violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, in 2018, Righetti received text messages from the defendant without his authorization. He alleges the defendant never had his permission to text or call him and that the defendant used an automated dialing system.
The plaintiff holds Flywheel Sports Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly used an ATDS in connection with its communications with the defendant and sent the messages without his consent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for statutory damages of at least $500 per phone call/text message, treble damages and any other relief as the court deems just and appropriate. He is represented by Reuben D. Nathan of Nathan & Associates APC in Newport, California.
