What is this lawsuit about?
This class action lawsuit is known as Halperin v. YouFit Health Clubs, LLC, Case No. 18-CV-61722-WPD (S.D. Fla.). The lawsuit alleges that YouFit sent text messages to Plaintiff’s wireless telephone number without prior express written consent in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 (“TCPA”) and seeks actual and statutory damages under the TCPA on behalf of the named Plaintiff and a class of all individuals in the United States.
YouFit denies each and every allegation of wrongdoing, liability, and damages that were or could have been asserted in the litigation and that the claims in the litigation would be appropriate for class treatment if the litigation were to proceed through trial.
