CHICAGO — A man has filed a class action lawsuit against Ralph Lauren Corp., Ralph Lauren Retail Inc. and Vibes Media LLC, citing alleged violation of telephone harassment statutes.
Lead plaintiff Patrick Hudson filed a complaint May 31 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendants violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, Hudson and the other defendants received more text messages from the defendants than they consented to receive. In addition, Hudson alleges the messages did not include the required opt-out instructions, resulting in annoyance, loss of personal time and invasion of privacy.
The plaintiffs claim the defendants are responsible because they allegedly used an automated telephone dialing system when sending text messages that were generic and impersonal without opt-out instructions.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek a judgment for damages and all costs, attorney's fees and interest from the date of the judicial demand until the judgment is paid. Hudson is represented by William H. Beaumont of Beaumont Costales LLC in Chicago.
