Texas man files suit against Dallas newspaper over solicitation calls

By Noddy A. Fernandez | Aug 15, 2018

DALLAS (Legal Newsline) – A Grapevine, Texas resident alleges a newspaper unlawfully called him to solicit him to purchase a subscription.

Fred Dembski, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Aug. 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas against The Dallas Morning News Inc. over alleged violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

According to the complaint, on May 18, Dembski registered his landline telephone number on the National Do-Not-Call-Registry and began receiving unsolicited calls to his land line from the defendant beginning in July. He alleges he has not subscribed to the Dallas Morning News in 20 years and that the calls were made without his consent.

The plaintiff holds The Dallas Morning News Inc. responsible because the defendant unlawfully allegedly contacted consumers whose numbers are registered on the Do Not Call Registry.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks award of actual and/or statutory damages, injunction and such further and other relief as the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Avi R. Kaufman of Kaufman, PA in Miami.
