KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wood Law Firm, LLC and Bill Kenney Law Firm, LLC announced that two plaintiffs have filed a putative class-action lawsuit challenging the telemarketing practices of WIX.com, Inc. The lawsuit alleges WIX violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by sending automated telemarketing text messages to cellular phones without obtaining prior express consent, including to persons whose phone numbers were registered on the national do-not-call lists.
Specifically, the plaintiffs allege WIX is using caller identification or other similar technology to capture the cellular phone number of any person or entity who calls WIX's general business number (1-800-600-0949) and that WIX automatically (without human intervention) sends a text message to the captured cellular phone number containing WIX's logo and/or a link to WIX's website, www.wix.com. The plaintiffs seek up to $1,500 for each person or entity to whom WIX sent a text message from 1-800-600-0949 in the last four years.
The case is styled Williams, et al. v. WIX.com, Inc., Case No. 4:17-cv-00434 (W.D. Mo.). The plaintiffs are represented by Noah Wood and Ari Rodopoulos of Wood Law Firm, LLC and William Kenney of Bill Kenney Law Firm, LLC.
