Wolford Boutiques Text Spam Settlement Notes
- Jennifer Liotta et al. v. Wolford Boutiques LLC
- Case No. 1:16-cv-04634-MHC
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia
In December 2016, plaintiff Jennifer Liotta filed this class action lawsuit against Wolford Boutiques the company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act’s mandatory disclosure and opt-out requirements. Wolford Boutiques is a popular retailer of luxury tights, bodysuits, and underwear, as well as high-end women’s clothing and accessories. There are over 30 retail locations throughout the U.S.
According to the complaint, Wolford sent text messages advertising their goods but did not clearly state the “identity of the business responsible for sending the text message”. Additionally, the text spam did not “provide an automated, interactive voice-and/or key-press-activated opt-out mechanism for the recipient to make a do-not-call request.” In fact, when Liotta called the phone number provided in the text message and tried to remove her number from the list, a Wolford representative told her there was nothing they could do to stop the text message.
Wolford denies that the text message(s) failed to include proper description of the sender of the text and failed to include a proper opt-out mechanism. Nonetheless, to avoid the further costs of litigation, Wolford has agreed to settle.Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Wolford Boutiques Text Spam settlement website.
