LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles individual claims a debt collector called him at a harassing rate.
Tate filed a complaint on Feb. 28 in the U.S. District Court for the
Central District of California against Progressive Finance Holdings LLC
alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the
Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the
complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he suffered damages from receiving
several collection calls from the defendant. He alleges the defendant
placed calls at an excessive and harassing rate. The plaintiff holds
Progressive Finance Holdings LLC responsible because the defendant
allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to call the
plaintiff and did so without his consent.
The plaintiff requests a
trial by jury and seeks statutory damages, treble damages, actual
damages, all legal fees, punitive damages and any other relief as the
court deems just. He is represented by Trinette G. Kent of Lemberg Law
LLC in Wilton, Connecticut.
