LOS ANGELES – A Redondo Beach man alleges an insurance brokerage company unlawfully called him for telemarketing purposes.
David Vaccaro, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on July 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against The Jonathan Agency and Insurance Brokerage Inc. and Does 1-10 alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in January 2018, the defendants contacted his cellular telephone in an attempt to solicit him to purchase their insurance services. He alleges the defendants did not have his consent to call him and that his phone number has been registered on the National Do-Not-Call Registry since 2003.
The plaintiff holds The Jonathan Agency and Insurance Brokerage Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly made calls using an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or pre-recorded voice without his prior express consent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages of $500 for each and every violation, treble damages of $1,500 for each and every willful violation and such other just and proper relief. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon, Meghan E. George and Tom E. Wheeler of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman in Woodland Hills.
