LOS ANGELES – Two residents from Sun City and Lynwood allege that an Orange dental business keeps calling them despite their requests to stop and has filed a class-action suit.
Maria Bacchus and Tina McDaniel filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 15 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Western Dental Services Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that in April and May, they were contacted several times on their cellular telephones despite their requests for the defendant to stop calling them. The plaintiffs hold Western Dental Services Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly contacted the plaintiff several times using an automatic dialing system.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek injunctive relief, $1,500 as treble damages for each and every call, $500 as statutory damages for each and every call, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by L. Timothy Fisher, Annick M. Persinger and Yeremey O. Krivoshey of Bursor & Fisher PA in Walnut Creek and Scott A. Bursor of Bursor & Fisher PA in New York.
