A California woman is suing a company, alleging it made unsolicited pre-recorded phone calls to herself and others.
Sherryl Medina, of San Diego, filed a lawsuit on behalf of herself and all other similarly situated Sept. 3 in U.S. District Court Southern District of California against Enhanced Recovery Company, doing business as ERC, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, in January, Medina received a number of unsolicited phone calls to her wireless phone, without her consent, in an attempt to collect an alleged debt by a person named "Ryan," many of which were prerecorded or artificial voice messages. The suit says Medina spoke to a representative of ERC to inform the defendant she was not related, nor did she know an individual named "Ryan," and that they had the wrong number and requested that the calls stop, but they continued.
The lawsuit alleges the plaintiff was charged for these calls each time, and they were made without her consent, a violation of Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
Medina seeks damages of $500 per violation and immediate injunctive relief prohibiting such calls in the future, and any other relief the court deems just and proper. She seeks a jury trial. She is represented by attorney Ronald A. Marron, Alexis Wood and Kas Gallucci, of the Law Offices of Ronald A. Marron, of San Diego.
