Brandon filed a petition at a small claims court seeking $17.31 in damages. He told the Austin American-Statesman that he spent that much money to take his unidentified date to a 3-D showing of "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2" on May 6, 2017.
His petition partly reads,
"after the movie started, defendant activated her phone at least 10-20 times in 15 minutesto read and send text messages, in direct violation of the theater's policy".
Vezmar accuses his date of "adversely affecting the viewing experience" of moviegoers.
"While damages sought are modest, the principle is important as defendant's behavior is a threat to civilized society".
He also told the newspaper that he met the woman online, and that it was their first date.
"It was kind of a first date from hell," he said.
