Southern District of New York Appoints John Kristensen As Class Counsel in Meghan George v. Shamrock Saloon II Case

On January 13, 2019, Hon. Ronnie Abrams of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York issued an Order that granted class certification and appointing John Kristensen of Kristensen LLP as class counsel. The case is titled Meghan George v. Shamrock Saloon II, LLC and it involves claims of illegal text messages to cell phones. The class consists of 67,630 individuals who received text messages from Calico Jack’s Saloon. The claims are made under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, aka TCPA. The Court will likely be soon setting up a trial date where Kristensen LLP will request at least $500 per call for each 67,630 individuals who received text messages from Calico Jack’s Saloon. That’s at a minimum $33,815,000. Unlike other firms, Kristensen LLP seeks to include individuals responsible for TCPA violations (and employment ones too). The claims were certified against John L. Sullivan as well.

This was the third class certified in eight months by Kristensen LLP (2 were contested), and we have a fourth settlement for class certification on its way in an employment case. If you have a consumer case that you think might be ripe for a class action, contact us. We handle cases nationwide.
