LOS ANGELES – A Reseda individual has filed a class-action lawsuit alleging a college matching search company called him in an attempt to solicit its educational services.
Dave Alan filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Edutrek LLC, doing business as Edutrek, and Does 1 through 10 alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in April, the defendant called him on his cellphone in an attempt to solicit its services. The plaintiff holds Edutrek LLC and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to contact plaintiff's cellular telephone and did not have his consent to contact him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages of $500 for each violation, treble damages of $1,500 for each violation, all legal fees and any other relief the court deems just. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon and Meghan E. George of La Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills.
