Alfredo Leon Orea filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on March 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Brown and Joseph LTD and Does 1 through 10 citing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in October 2016, he suffered damages from receiving several collection calls from the defendants. The plaintiff holds Brown and Joseph LTD and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly kept on calling the plaintiff using an automatic telephone dialing system without his consent.
