Bret Lusskin, Esq. Obtains $63,000.00 Judgment Against Debt Collector for Harassment

On May 1, 2014, Bret Lusskin, Esq. obtained partial summary judgment against Diversified Consultants, Inc., for violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.  Diversified Consultants, a debt collector, was ordered to pay $63,000.00 for violating a Florida consumer’s rights by repeatedly placing automated collection calls to her cellular telephone.

The Honorable Judge Ursula Ungaro found that Diversified Consultants placed 126 unlawful calls to the Plaintiff’s cellular telephone.  These calls were made using prohibited technology, including an automatic telephone dialing system and an artificial or prerecorded voice.  Under federal law, such calls are illegal unless placed with the prior express consent of the called party.
