Uber TCPA Litigation
Uber Text Class Action Lawsuit
On July 26, 2018, our Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) attorneys filed a class action lawsuit against Uber. The plaintiff alleges that Uber used an automatic telephone dialing system (“ATDS”) to repeatedly text his cellular phone—at inconvenient times—despite his requests that Uber stop texting him.

Unsolicited Texts from Uber
Users and non-users of Uber’s app report that they have received unwanted text messages from Uber. Most of the text messages say “Your Uber code is . . . ,” followed by a 4 digit number. People who reply to these messages receive an automated response that informs them to reply “STOP” to unsubscribe from receiving the text messages. But people who replied “stop” continue to receive the Uber text messages.
Uber sends many of these texts at inconvenient times of the day such as the early morning hours.

Congress Passed the TCPA to Protect Consumers
Congress passed the TCPA in 1991 to protect “the tranquility and privacy of [a person’s home] … [from] intrusive and annoying interruptions.” The bill’s sponsor, Senator Ernest “Fritz” Hollings, described telemarketing calls as “the scourge of modern civilization. They wake us up in the morning; they interrupt our dinner at night; they force the sick and elderly out of bed; they hound us until we want to rip the telephone right out of the wall … These calls are a nuisance and an invasion of our privacy.” The TCPA gives consumers the right to sue for any violations of the law involving automatic dialers, unsolicited cell phone calls, prerecorded messages, and do-not-call lists.
Stop Robotexts from Uber.
Robotexts are text messages sent from an automatic dialing system to your cell phone. Have you received unwanted texts?
Subject to a few specific exceptions, the TCPA prohibits these auto-dialed text messages…
you provided prior express consent to receive such messages. And even if you consented to receive the messages, you can always revoke that consent.

How to Document Evidence of Potential TCPA Violations
We recommend that you take the following steps to document evidence of potential TCPA violations:
- When you receive incoming calls, you should always request the caller’s name and contact information in order to maintain a written record of the call. We suggest that you write down the date and time of the call as well as a brief description of the conversation that took place or the pre-recorded message.
- If you received unwanted calls or messages on your cell phone, please save the call logs, text messages, and your cell phone bills.
- If you received an unauthorized text message, please save a screenshot and send it to us. You can upload it by completing our online survey here.
- Please save voicemails that you believe came from auto dialers or telemarketers.
- If you ever sent a letter, text or email to stop receiving calls or texts, please keep a copy for us to review.
