Lands’ End Inc. will not have to face a proposed class-action lawsuit from a Super 8 Motel operator, which accused the retailer of sending unsolicited faxes advertising its products, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled Thursday.

A unanimous panel of the Manhattan-based appeals court held that Gorss Motels Inc., which operated the Super 8 as a franchise of Wyndham Hotel Group, had given “prior express invitation or permission” to receive the faxes from Lands’ End and other Wyndham-approved suppliers for use in its hotels.
