Florence Morris filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Jan. 19 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Credence Resource Management LLC, alleging telephone privacy violations.
According to the complaint, since Sept. 19, 2017, Morris and other similarly situated consumers have suffered from invasion of their privacy.
