SAN FRANCISCO – A Novato man is suing a New Jersey company over allegations it contacted him using a pre-recorded voice.
Robert Russell Drew filed a complaint on Feb. 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Francisco Division against Capital Advance Solutions LLC, alleging that the incorporated business unlawfully violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between Jan. 20 and Feb. 23, he was contacted on his cellular telephone by the defendant without prior consent in an attempt to solicit services. The plaintiff holds Capital Advance Solutions LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to call plaintiff and the defendant was not in any way authorized by the plaintiff to call him on his mobile phone.
The plaintiff seeks the following: compensation for all damages in the amount of $5,000 in accordance to the TCPA and damages amounting to $2,500 because his number is also listed on the National Do Not Call list. Drew is representing himself.
