NEW ORLEANS – A New Orleans consumer claims a Texas company keeps calling him in an attempt to solicit its mortgage services.
Thomas Martinez filed a complaint on Oct. 27 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Nationstar Mortgage LLC alleging that the financing company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that within four years of filing this complaint, he has received calls to his cellular phone telephone from the defendant soliciting him to refinance his mortgage. As a result, he alleges he has suffered damages for incurring charges for incoming calls. The plaintiff holds Nationstar Mortgage LLC responsible because despite his request to stop calling him, the defendant allegedly continued to call his cellular telephone using an automatic telephone dialing system and pre-recorded voice messages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunctive relief, compensation of $500 in statutory damages for each and every violation, $1,500 in treble damages for each and every violation and any other relief that the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Samuel J. Ford of Varadi, Hair & Checki LLC in New Orleans.
