SAN DIEGO – A real estate agent claims a Valencia company contacted him to request information on the buyers of a home he sold.
Erik Knutson filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Jan. 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Blue Light Security Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in December 2016, the defendant contacted him using an automatic dialing system. The suit states that the defendant's representative offered him a $200 gift card for the contact information for the buyers of a home he just sold.
The plaintiff holds Blue Light Security Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly called the plaintiff on his cellular telephone without prior consent from him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages, $1,500 in treble damages, injunctive relief and any other relief as this court deems just. He is represented by Joshua Swigart and Kevin Lemieux of Hyde and Swigart in San Diego.
