BEAUMONT – A Plano company is alleged to have unlawfully called a Maryland man for marketing purposes.
Aaron Hirsch, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on Oct. 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas against TranzVia LLC alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that between March and June 2017, he received multiple calls on his cellular telephone without his consent from the defendant in an effort to solicit its goods and services.
The plaintiff holds TranzVia LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly made unsolicited calls to his cellular telephone and to the members of the class using an autodialer and/or artificial or pre-recorded voice message. The plaintiff also alleges that his phone number has been registered on the National Do-Not-Call registry since 2003.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order certifying this matter as a class action designating him as class representative and Berger & Montague PC and Butzel Long as class counsels, award for statutory and treble damages, pre- and post-judgment interest and such other just and proper relief.
He is represented by Warren T. Burns and Daniel Charest of Burns Charest LLP in Dallas, Michael Dell’Angelo and Lane L. Vines of Berger & Montague PC in Philadelphia and Max F. Maccoby and Thomas Bick of Butzel Long in Washington, D.C.
