NEW ORLEANS – A New Orleans woman alleges a Minnesota debt collector continues to call her without her permission.
Latoya Jerry filed a complaint on June 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against I.C. Systems Inc. alleging that the debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she received numerous calls on her cellular telephone from the defendant attempting to collect an alleged debt, causing her to suffer severe mental and emotional distress, emotional outbreaks, insomnia and stress. The suit states the calls she received were made without her prior express permission. The plaintiff holds I.C. Systems Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly continued to call her even after being instructed to cease calling her and placed repeated and harassing phone calls using an automatic telephone dialing system.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunction requiring defendant to cease all collection efforts against her, compensation for all damages, attorney’s fees and costs and any other relief that the court deems appropriate. She is represented by Samuel J. Ford of Varadi, Hair & Checki LLC in New Orleans.
