Severson & Werson attorneys gained a major victory on behalf of a shared vehicle start-up in Seattle, Washington.  In a decision entered in February of this year, the Court dismissed a nationwide TCPA class action in favor of the defendant, finding that the contours of “express consent” were broad enough to encompass instances where a customer received a text message after providing a cellular number as part of an online registration process. The ruling signifies a shift toward a “common sense” application of the “express consent” exemption.
