Dennis vs. The Regional Adjustment Bureau, Inc.

Dennis vs. The Regional Adjustment Bureau, Inc. (S.D. Fla. – July 7, 2010) – Case No. 09-cv-61494. Plaintiff claimed our client, a debt collection agency, violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act. The court granted our client summary judgment on the Plaintiff’s claims for statutory damages under the TCPA and FCCPA. Specifically, the court held that the FCCPA does not require a debt collector to identify himself absent a request by the consumer to do so, that the call volume at issue did not rise to a harassing level as a matter of law, and that the Plaintiff’s  testimony that Defendant’s messages “sounded pre-recorded” was insufficient to create a genuine issue of material fact.
