LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) — A California man is suing a department store chain, alleging violation of telephone harassment statutes.
Rey Rabago of Redlands, California, filed a class action complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Sept. 16 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against
Harley Davidson of Riverside and Does 1-10,
alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, in June, Rabago began receiving calls on his cellular phone from the defendants, attempting to solicit him to purchase their services, which caused him to incur charges for incoming calls.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants made calls using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice and without Rabago's prior express consent. They also continued to call Rabago even after he requested the defendants to stop calling him, the suit says.
Rabago seeks trial by jury, $500 for each and every negligent violation and $1,500 for each and every willful violation and all other relief the court deems just and proper. He is represented by attorney Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon and Meghan E. George of the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman in Woodlands Hills, California.
