SAN DIEGO – An individual has filed a class-action lawsuit against a debt collector over claims it did not have permission to contact the plaintiff.
Taneesha Crooks filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on Feb. 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against CMRE Financial Services Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2016, she suffered damages from receiving several unwanted calls from the defendant and from being charged for those calls. The plaintiff holds CMRE Financial Services, Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly kept on calling the plaintiff despite her request to stop calling.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages, $1,500 in treble damages, injunctive relief and any other relief this court deems just. She is represented by Joshua B. Swigart and Yana A. Hart of Kazerouni Law Group APC in San Diego.
