LOS ANGELES – A consumer alleges he has been contacted by a bank hundreds of times in its attempt to collect a debt.
Christopher Holt and Eilbra Holt filed a complaint on Aug. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against US Bank National Association, Absolute Resolutions Investments LLC and Diversified Consultants Inc. citing the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the defendants are attempting to collect a debt from Christopher Holt and Eilbra Holt has never been a co-signer or secondary obligor on the debt. The suit states beginning November 2017, US Bank placed calls to both of the plaintiffs' phones in an attempt to collect the debt.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendants for actual, punitive, and statutory damages; attorney’s fees and costs; interest; and other relief that the court deems appropriate. They are represented by Brian Brazier of Price Law Group APC in Scottsdale, Arizona and Lauren Tegan Rodkey of Price Law Group APC in Encino.
