LOS ANGELES – A Venture consumer has filed a class-action lawsuit against a debt collector alleging it violated federal law with the collection calls it placed to her cellphone.
Annette Grind filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Sept. 9 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against
TRS Recovery Services Inc. and Does 1-10 citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in April, she suffered damages from receiving collection calls on her cellular telephone from the defendant. The plaintiff holds TRS Recovery Services Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to contact plaintiff despite her request to stop calling her.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages for each and every violation of the TCPA, $1,500 in treble damages for each and every violation of the TCPA, and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Meghan E. George, and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills.
