LOS ANGELES — A Los Angels man is suing an insurance provider, alleging the defendant's constant phone calls invaded his privacy.
Nathan Hale filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, July 17 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against American International Group Inc. and Does 1 through 10, alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, in July 2015, Hale began receiving calls to his cellular phone offering the defendant's services. The suit says these calls caused him to incur charges for incoming calls or for reducing telephone time.
Hale alleges the defendants placed calls using an automatic telephone dialing system, and an artificial or pre-recorded voice without the plaintiff's prior express permission.
Hale seeks a trial by jury, judgment against each defendant for $500 for each statutory violation, $1,500 for each treble violation and all other relief the court deems proper. He is represented by attorneys Todd M. Friedman and Adrian Bacon of the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Beverly Hills.
