Alleging she was repeatedly harassed with phone calls seeking repayment of a debt, Rita Coulon has filed suit against Consumer Portfolio Services.

The suit was filed Oct. 24 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, throughout 2010 and 2011 Consumer Portfolio attempted to collect an alleged consumer debt from the plaintiff by repeatedly calling her at work and home.

In her suit, Coulon says the company harassed her by its relentless calls and conduct of speaking with co-workers and neighbors.

She asserts the company violated Chapter 392 of the Texas Finance Code and invaded her privacy.

The plaintiff is suing for exemplary damages.

Dallas attorney Dean Malone represents her.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. E191-241
