LOS ANGELES – A consumer alleges a debt collector is engaging in abusive and deceptive collection practices.
John Sloatman III filed a complaint individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated on March 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Medcah Inc. and Does 1-10 alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in March 2017, the defendant contacted him in an attempt to collect an alleged debt. He alleges the defendant contacted him without his consent and continued to do so after he revoked his consent.
The plaintiff holds Medcah Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to put in place reasonable policies and procedures to avoid violation of the TCPA and continued to place calls to the class despite their explicit revocation of consent to be called.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for statutory damages, actual damages, costs, attorney's fees and further relief as may be just. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon and Meghan E. George of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills.
