The suit also said that Facebook sending the texts violates the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
The act protects privacy rights of those who don't want to be spammed with unsolicited texts on their phones.
The suit specifically claims that Brickman chose notification settings that "clearly indicate that (he) did not activate text messaging for his cellphone."
It also claims Brickman selected the "off" option for text messages under notification settings.
Brickman is represented by Patrick J. Perotti, Esq. and Frank A. Bartela, Esq. of Dworken & Bernstein and Hassan A. Zavareei, Kristen Law Sagafi and Martin D. Quiñones of Tycko & Zavareei.
Brickman is seeking statutory damages as well as costs and attorneys' fees.
