Tinder’s Dating App

January/February 2017: The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the district court’s decision to dismiss the complaint with prejudice and remanded the case for further proceedings.

January 2016: This action was dismissed with prejudice because the named plaintiff filed a complaint making similar allegations in a California court before filing this Florida action, giving California jurisdiction over the issues.

October 2015: A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against Tinder (a dating app for mobile phones). Among other things, the complaint alleges that Tinder:

  • deceptively advertises its services as “free” when, in reality, consumers need to pay for services starting March 2015;
  • misleadingly charges consumers multiple times for the same services; and
  • continues to automatically withdraw funds from consumers’ accounts without their consent.

(Warner et al v. Tinder, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-23790,S. D. FL.)
