Brandon Vezmar filed a petition at a small claims court seeking $17.31 in damages after taking his date to a 3-D showing of "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2".

"It was kind of a first date from hell", Vezmar told the American-Statesman.

An act of courtship turned sour has fueled an Austin, Texas man to sue a woman he met online after accusing her of texting during their outing at the movies.

The 35-year-old woman, unidentified by local media, stands accused by Vezmar of being a bad date. Vezmar says that she also left the theater after the movie without giving him a lift, and that his subsequent attempts to contact her to get the ticket money refunded were ignored.

New cyber chaos appears to have been avoided: Europol
The computing giant said software vulnerabilities hoarded by governments had caused "widespread damage", the BBC reported. The radio said the factory is working with the central office in France to resolve the problem.

The date, who asked to be unnamed, said she wasn't aware of the charges until the American Statesman asked her. "It wasn't like constant texting". So, he sued her for the money he spent on the ticket. She said her reason for not paying him back was because he took her out on a date.

Vezmar claims that she started using her mobile device 15 minutes into the film. Flexibility on what happens when that piece of movie theater etiquette tends to be a personal thing and for one Texas man, it's the sort of thing he's suing over. According to Vezmar, about 15 minutes after the movie began, the woman, who has not been identified, began texting. Vezmar suggested she step outside to text and said the woman left the theater and never returned. Brandon Vezmar, 37, is asking the courts to force a woman he brought on a date to see the Marvel blockbuster to pay back the price of her admission. Her friend had just gotten into an argument with her boyfriend, and she was doing her best to support her friend via text, while still not disturbing the other people watching the movie.

"Guardians" director James Gunn weighed in on Twitter, and unsurprisingly, he's (jokingly) campaigning for harsher consequences.
