HOUSTON – DirecTV is alleged to have accessed a Houston man's consumer report without his knowledge or consent.
Bryan F. Stallworth filed a complaint on Oct. 18 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against DirecTV LLC alleging that the satellite service provider violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 27, the plaintiff accessed his credit report and found that the defendant had accessed his consumer report in March 2017, December 2017 and January. He alleges he has never signed up or applied for the defendant's services and that the defendant misrepresented to the credit reporting agencies that he was attempting to obtain credit.
The plaintiff holds DirecTV LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly violated the FCRA by obtaining his credit report without a relationship with him.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual and punitive damages, statutory damages of $1,000 for each violation of the FCRA, costs, attorney fees and any other relief as the court deems just and appropriate. He is represented by Nathan C. Volheim and Taxiarchis Hatzidimitriadis of Sulaiman Law Group LTD in Lombard, Illinois.
