Ruby v. Build A Bear Workshop, Inc.
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
Case No. 4:21-cv-01152-JAR
ALL PERSONS WHO RECEIVED TWO (2) OR MORE TEXT MESSAGES FROM BUILD-A-BEAR WORKSHOP, INC. BETWEEN SEPTEMBER 24, 2017 AND MARCH 28, 2023 AFTER REQUESTING NOT TO RECEIVE THEM:
A federal court authorized the Notice. This is not solicitation from a lawyer.
The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri (the “Court”) preliminarily approved a class-action settlement in the matter of Ruby v. Build-A-Bear Workshop, Inc., Case No. 4:21-CV-01152-JAR regarding certain text messages sent by Defendant Build-A-Bear Workshop, Inc. (“BABW”).
Plaintiff alleged that BABW sent text message solicitations to customers after they had revoked consent to receive them, in alleged violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227, et seq. and certain regulations promulgated thereunder, including 47 C.F.R. §§ 64.1200(c)(2) and 64.1200(d) (collectively, the “TCPA”). BABW has denied these allegations and all claims of wrongdoing, and has asserted certain defenses, including that BABW established and implemented, with due care, reasonable practices and procedures designed to effectively prevent telephone solicitations in violation of the TCPA. However, given the risks, uncertainties, burden, and expense of continued litigation, the parties agreed to pursue settlement of this matter, which resulted in the Settlement that has been preliminarily approved by the Court.
