Ugh... If she's been receiving these text messages, then she probably subscribed to them in the first place, either by entering one of their contests or some other way. If not, she may have a case, but $5 million? Wow. Welcome to America!
Hmmm Im pretty sure she will loose this one...I mean BK has they;re corporate fueled Attorney's and such...specially 5 mill...I could see her making maybe 100k Maybe 250k at most but thats asking a bit much even then in my honest opinion.
First off, if Burger King was sending her text messages, they knew this was a cell phone. Second, in order to receive these messages, she probably supplied her phone number -OR- texted some code to a number setup by Burger King. Seems to me this woman shouldn't have signed-up for these messages, or should have canceled them when they were no longer wanted. How she thinks $5million is proper compensation for her own stupidity is beyond me.
I signed up for Pancheros text messages to get some free chips and queso. They send me like 1 text message a week, and its always a coupon for free chips and queso/guac/salsa good for that day only. A $3 coupon for what is essentially a free text message (with my data plan), I can't complain.
[citation][nom]Socnom[/nom]Hmm.. After Obama taxes (cap & trade for her talking so much bs), health insurance premiums, & lawyer fees, she might just end up barely paying her text bills.But seriously, There should be a common sense filter for lawsuits. She could have easily blocked the text messages from BK after the first one.[/citation]
yeah, and if she were a corporation, there's a 95% chance that she wouldn't pay any taxes at all
On one end it doesn't suprise me. I mean this is America. People sue for anything. The sad thing is she more than likely gave them her number, unless they send texts to random numbers now.
On the other end I'd be pissed to if they did that to me, so I don't blame her. Although I wonder what harm was actually caused from the texts. All in all, it is a law. I hope for her sake that she didn't sign up for anything and does win.
Another lawsuit brought by somebody who should be fined for contributing to the clogging up of the justice system with stupid allegations. I mean $5 million? Come on, that right there tells me your just looking to sue someone in hopes of getting a big settlement and not have to work. If she was was suing for the cost and of the text messages and maybe another 10% on top I MIGHT say there might be some merit here, but 5 million, that just kills it for me.
