FORT MYERS, Fla. (Legal Newsline) – A Florida man is suing a for-profit college over claims it made unsolicited calls to his cellphone.

Nicholas Reeder, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class-action lawsuit Dec. 28 in the Fort Myers Division of the Middle District of Florida against Azure College, alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

The suit states that since Oct. 16, 2013, Azure College has advertised its schools by placing thousands of phone calls using an artificial or pre-recorded voice and an automated telephone dialing system to cellphone subscribers without their prior express written consent, in violation of the TCPA.

Reeder and others in the class seek compensatory damages, statutory penalties, injunctive relief, interests, attorney fees, and costs of the suit, together to exceed $5 million. They are represented by attorney J. Andrew Meyer of Leavengood Dauval Boyle & Meyer in St. Petersburg, Florida; attorney Scott E. Brady of Bohrer Brady in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; and attorneys John P. Wolff III and Christopher K. Jones of Keogh Cox & Wilson in Baton Rouge.
