LOS ANGELES – A consumer who has registered his number on the National Do-Not-Call Registry alleges a computer manufacturer unlawfully called him.
John Sloatman III filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on May 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Dell Inc. and Does 1 through 10 alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in April 2016, he suffered damages from receiving several unwanted calls from the defendants in their attempt to solicit services. The plaintiff holds Dell Inc. and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly kept on calling the plaintiff using an automatic telephone dialing system to call the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages, $1,500 in treble damages, and any other relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon and Meghan E. George of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman P.C. in Woodland Hills.
