Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware of the following Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) class action lawsuit filing:
Red Robin International, Inc., Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc.

Class action lawsuit filed in United States District Court, Central District of California, against Red Robin International, Inc. and Red Robin Gourment Burgers, Inc. for alleged TCPA violations “by sending consumers unsolicited text messages for marketing and advertising purposes, without prior express written consent, invading the consumers’ right to privacy.”

According to the class action complaint, the Plaintiff was asked if he wanted to participate in the Red Robin Royalty program by a Red Robin server during a Red Robin restaurant visit in 2015.  Plaintiff, according to the complaint, provided his telephone number and, subsequently, received text messages listed in the class action complaint as follows:

October 25, 2017:

“Red Robin Royalty: Last chance for a Free Shake with $10 purchase!

Check your Royalty account for details! Offer ends 10/28/18. Reply STOP

to cancel.”

March 26, 2018:

“Red Robin Royalty: 1 week left to get a Free Tavern burger with additional

burger purchase! Check your account for details! Ends 4/1/18. Reply

STOP to cancel.”

“Red Robin Royalty: Get a Free Appetizer w/$10 minimum purchase all

weekend. Check your Royalty account for details. Ends 4/22/18. Reply

“Red Robin Royalty: One week left to get BOGO 50% off Gourmet

June 29, 2018:

“Red Robin Royalty: Get a Free Appetizer w/$10 minimum purchase all

weekend! Check your Royalty account for details. Ends 7/1/18. Reply

The class action complaint against Red Robin alleges that “[a]t no time prior to receiving the text messages . . . had Plaintiff ever signed a document, whether in paper or electronic form, reciting that Red Robin was authorized to send text messages to him using an automatic telephone dialing system for telemarketing or advertising purposes. Similarly, at no time prior to receiving the text messages . . . had Plaintiff ever signed a document, whether in paper or electronic form, reciting that he was not required to provide consent as a condition of purchasing any goods or services.”
