Details on how to file a claim for the Papa John’s text spam settlement have arrived! If you received an unsolicited text message from Papa John’s, you may be eligible to claim $50 cash from the class action lawsuit settlement.
The Papa John’s pizza text settlement will resolve a 2010 class action lawsuit (Agne, et al. v. Papa John’s International Inc., et al.) accusing the pizza chain of sending more than 500,000 illegal text messages to Papa John’s customers advertising pizza specials. The text messages were illegal, plaintiffs say, because they were sent without the customers’ consent and with the use of an automatic dialing system in violation of the TCPA.
(Consumers who have received unsolicited text messages or cell phone calls from companies can sue these companies for TCPA damages. If you were contacted on your cell phone by a company without your permission, visit the Text Message Spam, Cell Phone Call TCPA Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Investigation for more information.)
Papa John’s continues to deny it did anything wrong in sending the text messages, arguing that customers gave consent to the messages when they provided their telephone numbers when purchasing a pizza. The company also maintains that — as a franchisor — it is not liable for the actions of its franchisees, which were the ones who hired the marketing company OnTime4U to send the text messages.
OnTime4U is also listed as a defendant in the Papa John’s pizza class action lawsuit.
Despite these arguments, which a federal judge rejected last year, the defendants have agreed to establish a $16.5 million class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.
Class Members of the Papa John’s class action settlement include all persons in the United States who received at least one unsolicited text message that marketed a Papa John’s branded product, good or service through OnTime4U.
Class Members that submit a valid Claim From will receive $50 from the class action settlement. Each potential Class Member will also receive a voucher code good for the online purchase of one free large one-topping pizza from Papa John’s.
You do not have to file a Claim Form to receive the free Papa John’s pizza voucher. However, you must submit a valid Claim Form by September 10, 2013 to receive the cash award.
