LOS ANGELES – An individual has filed a class-action lawsuit against a Long Beach company alleging it made unsolicited robocalls to her number.
Carrie Beets filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Molina Healthcare Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in April, she was contacted twice on her cellular telephone without her consent by the defendant. She alleges she did not provide the defendant with her number and has never had any contact with the defendant. The plaintiff holds Molina Healthcare Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly kept on calling plaintiff's cellular telephone despite her request to stop calling and used an automatic telephone dialing system.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunctive relief, treble damages of $1,500 for each and every call, $500 in statutory damages for each and every call, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. She is 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, New York.
