LEGAL NEWSLINE - Jan 29 - A Florida federal judge has recommended that certain counts of a class action lawsuit against Tinder over allegations of misleading business practices be dismissed. Judge Andrea Simonton made the recommendation in a case filed by plaintiff Billy Warner, individually and on behalf of others. In 2014, Warner downloaded the free Tinder app. In 2015, Tinder began charging users $2.99 per month for Tinder Plus in order to get more "likes" for dating matches, which Warner paid. He alleges he was then asked to pay $19.99 a month for Tinder Plus. The defendant alleges that the plaintiff's claim under the Florida Free Gift Advertising Law fails because there is no allegation that the Tinder app was ever anything but free.
