ORLANDO – A Melbourne woman is suing a company that sought to recover an alleged debt in a manner that the plaintiff claims is a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
April Clark filed suit on March 8 in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against Ally Financial Inc., a company based in Detroit.
The plaintiff alleges that in September 2015 she began receiving numerous non-emergency telephone calls without her prior express permission. The plaintiff holds Ally Financial Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly made approximately 300 calls using an automatic telephone dialing system or pre-recorded voice messages.
The plaintiff seeks the following: compensation for statutory, punitive and actual damages, attorney's fees and costs and any further relief that the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Octavio "Tav" Gomez of Morgan & Morgan, Tampa PA in Tampa.
