LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A Los Angeles man claims that a loan company unlawfully called him to solicit its services.
Jonathan Payton, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Oct. 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Speedy Cash for alleged violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in January 2017, he was contacted by the defendant in an attempt to solicit him to purchase its services using an automatic telephone dialing system. The plaintiff claims he registered his telephone number on the National Do-Not-Call Registry on Nov. 28, 2014, but still receives calls from the defendant without his prior express consent.
The plaintiff holds Speedy Cash responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to establish and implement reasonable practices and procedures to effectively prevent telephone solicitations in violation of the regulation prescribed under the law.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to award of treble and statutory damages for each and every violation and all other relief that the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman, Adrian R. Bacon, Meghan E. George and Thomas E. Wheeler of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, PC in Woodland Hills, California.
