On February 3, 2021, the Honorable William H. Alsup of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California issued an Order Denying Motion to Compel Arbitration. This Order denied a motion to compel arbitration brought by Defendant Tawkify, Inc. and allows the plaintiff to continue to pursue his claims in court as a proposed class action instead of in individual arbitration. This is an important win.
Conn Law, PC, along with co-counsel Oliver Schreiber & Chao LLP, have brought a lawsuit against dating service provider Tawkify, Inc. for its violations of California’s Dating Services Contract Act, Civil Code §§ 1694, et seq. The DSCA is an important California consumer protection statute that create unwaivable rights for consumers. The DSCA applies to both “traditional” dating services and online apps.
Per the lawsuit, Tawkify, a California-based company, charges for online dating services but does not provide the required three-day cancellation notices or other important disclosures. And when customers attempt to cancel, Tawkify does not provide adequate or timely refunds.
Conn Law, PC is investigating potential claims of other Tawkify customers and clients who have signed up for Tawkify and tried to cancel. If you would like to discuss your experience with Tawkify, please call us at 877-421-9759 or fill out the intake form below.
