ORLANDO – A consumer alleges a Dallas-based debt collector unlawfully called him.
Rodman Gomez filed a complaint on April 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against Credit Protection Association LP alleging that the defendant violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that beginning in February 2015, he began to receive multiple telephone calls from the defendant on his cellular telephone number attempting to collect an alleged debt. The plaintiff claims that despite his request to stop calling, defendant's representatives continued to call a minimum of 48 times from Feb. 12, 2015, to June 20, 2015.
The plaintiff holds Credit Protection Association LP responsible because the defendant allegedly placed nonemergency telephone calls using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or used a pre-recorded or artificial voice while calling without plaintiff's consent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for actual and statutory damages, attorney's fees, litigation expenses, costs of suit, and such other or further relief as the Court deems equitable. He is represented by Eric D. Stevenson of Stevenson Klotz LLP in Pensacola.
