SAN FRANCISCO – An Oakley man alleges a Novato business repeatedly called him despite of never previously having contact with it. He has filed a class-action suit.
Hector Membreno filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against California Service Bureau Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between 2015 and 2016, he was called on his cellular telephone several times without his consent by the defendant. The plaintiff holds California Service Bureau Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly called plaintiff using an autodialer and/or artificial or pre-recorded voice.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunctive relief, $1,500 as treble damages for each and every call, $500 as statutory damages for each and every violation, all damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by L. Timothy Fisher, Annick M. Persinger and Yeremey O. Krivoshey of Bursor & Fisher PA in Walnut Creek.
