LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles County man alleges a debt collector called him without having his consent.
Alfred Ponce filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Jan. 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Navient Solutions Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in October 2015, he suffered damages from receiving several collection calls from the defendant and was charged for those calls. The plaintiff holds Navient Solutions Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to call the plaintiff and continued to do so despite his request to stop calling him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages, $1,500 in treble damages, actual damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon and Meghan E. George of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills.
