Papa John's Being Sued For $250 Million...

http://abcnews.go.com/Business/class-action-moves-forward-papa-johns-text-spamming/story?id=17718903#.UKRwH4cdySo

A group of Papa John's customers have filed a class action lawsuit against the pizza corporation as well as a handful of Papa John's franchisees for unsolicited text messages.

Last Friday, U.S. District Court Judge in Seattle John Coughenour certified the nationwide class action case against Papa John's International (NASDAQ: PZZA) for damages the plaintiffs say could reach over $250 million.

Donald Heyrich, an attorney representing the Papa John's customers, said he believes there were 500,000 text messages or more sent to customers over the span of a few years.

The plaintiffs, who first filed the lawsuit in 2010, point to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 which could lead to a penalty of at least $500 per unsolicited telephone advertisement or texting message.

2. That's a pain in the ass if you're a person that doesn't text and has to pay twenty cents for each

one. I finally added texting to my plan because my girlfriend couldn't avoid them running our business. Too many people would text her and it was costing me more than adding the minimum plan.

I'm surprised someone hasn't been nailed for that sooner.
