Case Name: Orozco v. Charlotte Russe, Inc. Litigation,
Case No. BC468486
Case Summary:

It is alleged that Charlotte Russe unlawfully solicited and recorded personal identification email from customers who use a credit card in violation of California Civil Code Section 1747.08. Charlotte Russe denies any wrongdoing. The case was settled before it was decided by a court.

We think it is fascinating that the California legislature think that Californians need protection from evil companies that ask for their email address at the cash register. Apparently they don’t think Californians are capable of simply saying no.
