SAN DIEGO – A San Diego County man alleges that a telecommunications company has a policy of "secretly recording" telephone conversations with consumers.
Gordon Siu, on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on June 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Cox Communications Inc. and Does 1 through 10 alleging violation of California penal code.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 21, 2017, he spoke to the defendant regarding his email account. He alleges that at no point during the conversation did he give permission for the call to be recorded. He alleges only after a representative spoke with him at length did the representative inform for the first time that the call was being recorded.
The plaintiff holds Cox Communications Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly recorded or monitored telephone conversations without the consent of all parties involved.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for statutory damages of $5,000 per violation, special damages, costs of suit, attorney's fees, prejudgment interest, and such further relief as this court deems necessary, just and proper. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Woodland Hills.
