Austin man sues date for texting during "Guardians of the Galaxy"

Posted: Updated:

Finding true love can be difficult, especially when you sue your date after a bad time.

According to a petition filed in small claims court in Travis County, Brandon Vezmar is suing a woman for texting during a showing of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2."

According to the Austin American-Statesman, Vezmar, 37, of Austin filed the claim Thursday against his date. He is asking for $17.31, which was the price of the movie ticket to a 3D showing of “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.”

In the petition, Vezmar said the woman “activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutes to read and send text messages.”

The 35-year-old woman, reached by phone Tuesday, said she didn’t know about the claim against her. She asked that her name not be used.

“Oh my God,” she said. “This is crazy.”

The woman said she only texted on her phone in the theater two or three times.

She said Vezmar had called her to ask her to pay him back for the movie ticket but she refused because “he took me out on a date.”

She said she also planned to file a protective order against Vezmar for contacting her little sister to get the money for the movie ticket.

According to the petition, the texting was a “direct violation” of the theater’s policy and that his date “adversely” affected Vezmar’s viewing experience and that of other patrons.
