ST. LOUIS — An Oklahoma consumer has filed a class-action lawsuit against a debt collector with offices in St. Louis following alleged repeated cellphone calls he received without consent.
Erick Johnson, on behalf of himself and others similarly situated, filed a complaint June 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri Eastern Division against Receivable Solutions Inc., alleging that the defendant violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 21, he started receiving calls from the defendant through a third-party caller named Isabella. The plaintiff claims he received numerous calls from an unknown person and alleges the calls were made using an automatic telephone dialing system. The plaintiff claims the calls were an invasion of his privacy, an intrusion into his life and a private nuisance.
The plaintiff holds Receivable Solutions responsible because the defendant allegedly repeatedly dialed the plaintiff's cellular telephone number for the purpose of attempting to collect a debt he did not owe, placed numerous calls without plaintiff's knowledge or consent and use an automatic telephone dialing system.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks the award of statutory damages in the amount of $1,500, award of costs of litigation, attorney's fees and other relief that the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Anthony LaCroix of LaCroix Law Firm LLC in Kansas City, Missouri, and Michael L. Greenwald of Greenwald Davidson Radbil PLLC in Boca Raton, Florida.
