Class Certification Denied In Text-Messaging Suit

Mealey's (June 28, 2016, 1:08 PM EDT) -- SEATTLE — A Washington federal judge on June 24 denied with prejudice a motion for class certification filed in a lawsuit accusing two billing aggregators of engaging in a scheme that caused Washington residents to unknowingly subscribe to premium text-messaging services, finding that the class is not ascertainable, individual issues predominate and a class action is not the superior method of resolution (Richard A. Geier, et al. v. m-Qube Inc., et al., No. 13-36080, W.D.Wash.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 82656).
