Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that on January 28, 2019, a class action lawsuit was filed against Quicken Loans Inc. in United States District Court, Central District of California, “. . . for legal and equitable remedies resulting from the [alleged] illegal actions of Quicken Loans Inc. in transmitting unsolicited, autodialed SMS or MMS text messages, en masse, to Plaintiff’s cellular device and the cellular devices of numerous other individuals across the country, in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 (‘TCPA’).”
According to the class action complaint, “[f]or over at least the past year, continuing through the present, [Quicken Loans] transmitted or caused to be transmitted, by itself or through an intermediary or intermediaries, numerous SMS or MMS text messages to the [Plaintiff’s cellular telephone number] without Plaintiff’s prior express written consent . . . .”
Further, the complaint alleges that “Plaintiff . . . on several occasions attempted to put a stop to [Quicken Loans’] invasive text messages by responding ‘STOP,’ to no avail. For instance, over a week before receiving [certain] text messages . . ., Plaintiff . . . texted ‘STOP’ in an attempt to end the onslaught of Defendant’s digital junk mail . . . .”
The complaint alleges that “[t]he source of the unsolicited text messages that [Quicken Loan] transmitted to the [Plaintiff’s cellular telephone number] was 26293, which is a telephone number leased by [Quicken Loans] or [Quicken Loans’] agent(s) or affiliate(s) and is used for operating [Quicken Loans’] text message marketing program.”
