ATLANTA (Legal Newsline) – A Georgia law firm is alleging an investigative services company violated federal law by sending it unsolicited faxes.
Hormozdi Law Firm filed a class action complaint Nov. 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia Atlanta Division against Advantage Investigative Services LLC alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
The plaintiff claims on Sept. 12, it received a two-page advertisement from Advantage for its "investigative services." The plaintiff alleges it did not give prior express invitation or permission for the defendant to send the fax.
"The unsolicited fax prevented plaintiff’s and the class members’ fax machines from receiving authorized faxes, prevented their use for authorized outgoing faxes, caused undue wear and tear on their fax machines, and required additional labor to attempt to discern the source and purpose of the unsolicited messages," the plaintiff alleges in its complaint.
The plaintiff seeks statutory damages of $500 for each TPCA violation, a trial by jury and other just relief. It is represented by Charles Clapp in Atlanta.
