SACRAMENTO – A Modesto woman claims a health products company unlawfully called her to solicit its services.
Gloria Whittington filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on Dec. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Direct Digital LLC and Does 1-10 citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that she started receiving calls from the defendants in May 2016 in an attempt to solicit her to purchase defendants' products and/or services. She alleges her number is enrolled with the National Do-Not-Call Registry and that the defendants did not have her consent to call her.
The plaintiffs hold Direct Digital LLC and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly engaged in an unlawful practice of using an autodialer to place calls to plaintiff's cellular phones, and without any prior express consent to place the calls.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants, statutory and treble damages, injunctive relief, and all other relief that the court deems just. She is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon and Meghan E. George of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills.
