LOS ANGELES – A resident of Los Angeles County has filed a class action against a debt collector over allegations it called her without her consent.
Victor Villela filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Feb. 3 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Western Dental Services Inc. and Does 1-10 citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she suffered damages from receiving several collection calls per day from the defendant. The plaintiff holds Western Dental Services Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly kept on calling the plaintiff using an automatic telephone dialing system despite her request to stop calling.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages, $1,500 as treble damages, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman P.C. in Woodland Hills.
