similarly situated on March 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Central
District of California against R.M. Galicia Inc. alleging violation of
the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Fair Debt Collection
Practices Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he and other similarly
situated individuals have suffered from anxiety, feelings of annoyance, invasion of privacy,
general discomfort and incurred incoming call charges as a result of

responsible because the defendant allegedly continued to make calls
despite plaintiff's explicit demand to stop the improper calls and
unlawfully utilized an autodialer and/or an artificial voice.

statutory damages, treble damages, costs, attorney's fees and further relief as may
be just. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon and
