SACRAMENTO – A Clovis man alleges a drape and blind company unlawfully called him to solicit its services.
Jogert Abrantes filed a complaint on behalf of individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on Feb. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against
American Blinds and Draperies Inc. and Does 1-10
citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in September 2016, the defendants used an automatic telephone dialing system to contact him to offer its services. He alleges he is registered in the National-Do-Not-Call Registry. The plaintiffs hold American Blinds and Draperies Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly engaged in an unlawful practice of using an autodialer to place calls to cellular phones and without prior express consent to communicate with plaintiff.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants, injunctive relief, statutory and treble damages of $500 for every violation and $1,500 for every willful violation, and all other relief that the court deems just. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon and Meghan E. George of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills.
