SACRAMENTO – A Yolo woman has filed a class-action lawsuit against a company over allegations of invasion of privacy.

Yvonne Lopez filed a complaint on behalf of herself and all others similarly situated on Feb. 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Jackpot Promotions LLC and Does 1 through 10, citing violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in September 2015, she was contacted by the defendant on her cellular telephone in an attempt to sell its services. The plaintiff did not contact the defendant in anyway prior to the call and never gave the defendant permission to call her, the suit states. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system, which is a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and that the calls made by the defendant to her cellphone were not for any emergency purposes.

The plaintiff seeks $500 per each and every negligent violation of the TCPA and $1,500 for every knowing and or willful violation of the TCPA, and any other relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman in Beverly Hills.
