One Inc. accused of sending unsolicited text messages through After School app, in reprise of dismissed suit

By Jenie Mallari-Torres | May 22, 2018

CHICAGO — A man has again filed a class action lawsuit against One Inc. for allegedly violating the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

Matthew Warciak filed a complaint on May 15 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendant violated the TCPA by allegedly sending intrusive and unwanted text messages through its app, After School.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs alleges he has suffered damages, including invasion of privacy, as a result of the unsolicited text messages that the defendant allegedly sent him to promote its application. 

The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly failing to inform its users of its intention to acquire his contact information in order to send unauthorized text message to his contact list.

The lawsuit is very similar to a class action Warciak and his legal team brought against One Inc. in June 2016. That case was removed to federal court, and was eventually voluntarily dismissed in February 2018.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant for actual, statutory and treble damages; injunctive and declaratory relief; class action certification; attorney's fees; costs; and any further relief the the court deems just. Warciak has been represented by attorneys with the firm of Edelson P.C., of Chicago.
