A Texas man has filed a lawsuit against a woman for the cost of a movie ticket after she texted during their cinema date.
Brandon Vezmar said the woman walked out of the screening of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 when he complained about her persistent phone use.
Vezmar filed the petition in the state capital of Austin last week seeking US$17.31 arguing his date's behaviour was a threat to civilised society.
Vezmar said she began texting about 15 minutes after the movie began during their first date on 6 May.
