Class Action Filed Against Huffington Post For Spam Texts

A class action lawsuit has been filed against for allegedly bombarding consumers with spam text-message “news alerts” at all hours of the day and night, in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Plaintiff Alicia St. Leger alleges that she signed up for the Huffington Post’s “Daily Brief” news summary service expecting to receive one text message per day. Instead, she got multiple text messages all day and night, which her wireless carrier charged her for. She claims that even though she repeatedly requested to “unsubscribe” the Huffington Post continued to send her multiple unwanted text messages. The Huffington Post Text Spam Class Action Lawsuit is brought on behalf of all persons in the U.S. and its territories who received text messages from the Huffington Post after requesting that the text messages stop. The class action seeks an award of actual and/or statutory damages, an injunction barring Huffington Post from sending unauthorized text messages, attorneys’ fees, court costs and more. If you are receiving unwanted spam text messages you may be entitled to compensation. Please give my office, The Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman a call today at (877) 449-8898 for a free consultation.
