LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles County individual has filed a class action against a debt collector over allegations it continued to call after he revoked his consent.
David Vaccaro filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Jan. 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Midland Credit Management Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in October 2015, he suffered damages from receiving several collection calls on his cellular telephone. The plaintiff holds Midland Credit Management Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly kept on calling the plaintiff using an automatic telephone dialing system despite plaintiff revoking all consent to be contacted.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages, treble damages, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon and Meghan E. George of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman P.C. in Woodland Hills.
