LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) - A California man is suing Adobe, alleging it kept calling his phone without his consent.
Jason Alcaraz, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit Feb. 3 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Adobe Systems and Does 1-10, alleging negligent and willful violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
The suit states that after Alcaraz called Adobe to obtain a refund for an erroneous double charge on his account, around December 2014, Adobe then began calling Alcaraz's cell phone to collect an alleged outstanding payment. The lawsuit says Adobe continued to call Alcaraz over the following months, using an automated telephone dialing system.
The complaint says Alcaraz never gave his consent to receive these calls, which were not for emergency purposes, in violation of the TCPA. Alcaraz alleges he attempted to get Adobe to cease calling, but says Adobe continued calling him using an automated telephone dialing system.
Alcaraz and others in the class seek statutory damages of $500 per violating call and treble damages of $1,500 per violating call. They are represented by attorneys Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman in Beverly Hills, California.
