LOS ANGELES – Two California consumers have filed a class-action suit against a marketing company alleging it called multiple times despite the plaintiffs' numbers being on the Do Not Call list.
Jason Alan and Vanessa Garcia filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Aug. 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against
Egumball Inc. and Does 1 through 10
alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that in June, they were contacted on their telephones without their consent by the defendant in an attempt to solicit its services. Alan alleges that the defendant called 34 times in less than two minutes on June 8, and both plaintiffs claim they did not give the defendant permission to call them. The plaintiffs hold Egumball Inc. and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly contacted the plaintiffs using an automatic dialing system.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek $500 in statutory damages for each and every violation, $1,500 in treble damages for each and every violation and any other relief as the court deems just. They are represented by Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills.
