Court Denies Motion to Compel Arbitration in Case Against America’s Test Kitchen

The United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts has denied a motion by America’s Test Kitchen to compel arbitration in a class-action lawsuit filed by Anca Adams. Adams, representing herself and others similarly situated, alleges that America’s Test Kitchen violated the Video Privacy Protection Act by sharing video viewing activities with a third party through the use of a tracking tool called “Pixel”. The defendants sought to compel arbitration based on terms in their service agreement. The court, however, denied the motion, allowing the case to proceed. The lawsuit contends that America’s Test Kitchen knowingly disclosed personally identifiable information without written consent.
