SACRAMENTO – An Auburn man alleges a Novato debt collector has harassed him with calls meant for another person.
Paul Lee filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated on Dec. 19 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against
California Service Bureau Inc. and Doe individuals
citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he started receiving calls on his cellular telephone in March 2016 from the defendants seeking another individual. He alleges he informed the defendants they had the wrong number, but they kept calling.
The plaintiff holds California Service Bureau Inc. and Doe individuals responsible because the defendants allegedly continued to make calls despite plaintiffs' explicit demand to stop the improper calls and unlawfully utilized an automatic telephone dialing system.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendants, certify case as a class action, statutory damages, injunctive relief, attorneys’ fees, costs and all other relief that the court deems just. He is represented by John P. Kristensen and David L. Weisberg of Kristensen Weisberg LLP in Los Angeles and Jarrett L. Ellzey of Hughes Ellzey LLP in Houston, Texas.
