On behalf of a client and others similarly situated, Lemberg & Associates filed a class action lawsuit in Scott v. Westlake Services LLC, dba Westlake Financial Services. The suit alleges that Westlake Services negligently, knowingly, and/or willfully placed automated calls (“robocalls”) to our client’s cell phone in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
The class representative was subjected to repeated cell phone calls from Westlake Services, in which Westlake Financial Services used an automatic telephone dialing system (ATDS). The TCPA prohibits ATDS calls and calls using an artificial or prerecorded voice to a cell phone without prior express consent by the person being called.
Even though our client asked Westlake Financial Services to stop making robocalls to her cell phone, the company continued to do so. Moreover, she never gave her prior express consent to receive such calls.
According to the complaint filed in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, the proposed class consists of all people within the U.S. who received one or more cell phone calls from Westlake Financial Services and who didn’t provide prior express consent for such calls.
The suit seeks statutory damages of $500 per call, triple damages of $1,500 per call, and injunctive relief prohibiting future calls from Westlake Financial Services.
