Sandra Diaz v. Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc.

Case Summary

On January 18, 2023, Sandra Diaz (“Plaintiff”), represented by Frank S. Hedin of Hedin Hall LLP, filed a personal injury lawsuit against Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (“Defendant”), seeking injunctive relief and damages for alleged violation of the Florida Telephone Solicitation Sales Act. This case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, with Judges David O. Carter and John D. Early presiding. 

In the complaint, the plaintiff claimed, “Since July 1, 2021, Plaintiff has received, at the 9446 Number, at least one text message that Defendant made or knowingly allowed another person to make on its behalf.”

Plaintiff alleged, “At the time the subject text messages were made to and received by Plaintiff, Plaintiff was ‘an actual or prospective purchaser, lessee, or recipient of consumer goods or services.’”

The plaintiff then alleged, “Accordingly, the text messages that Defendant made or knowingly allowed another person to make on its behalf to Plaintiff’s 9446 Number constituted ‘telephonic sales calls.’”

Additionally, the plaintiff alleged, “Each text message sent by or on behalf of Defendant to Plaintiff’s 9446 Number originated from the telephone number 88822, which is number leased or owned by or on behalf of Defendant that Defendant uses or knowingly allows another person to use to transmit telephonic sales calls, in the form of text messages, to consumers in an automated and en masse fashion.”

Plaintiff also alleged, “Because Plaintiff’s cellular phone alerts her whenever she receives a text message, each telephonic sales call by or on behalf of Defendant to Plaintiff’s 9446 Number invaded Plaintiff’s privacy and intruded upon Plaintiff’s seclusion upon receipt.”

The plaintiff further alleged that “Plaintiff has never provided her prior ‘prior express written consent’ to Defendant or any other party acting on Defendant’s behalf to authorize the subject telephonic sales calls to the 9446 Number by means of an ‘automated system for the selection or dialing of telephone numbers’ within the meaning of Fla. Stat. § 501.059(8)(a).”

Plaintiff presented a claim for relief for alleged violation of the Florida Telephone Solicitation Sales Act. 

In the prayer for relief, the plaintiff requested a judgment for injunctive and declaratory relief as well as an award of attorneys’ fees and costs.
