CHICAGO — A woman has filed a class action lawsuit against Comenity Bank, citing alleged violation of telephone harassment statutes for calling her about an alleged debt using an automatic dialer.
Lejune Brown filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on March 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging the financial institution called the plaintiff on her cellphone regarding a consumer debt.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in December 2016, she sustained damages from being charged for incoming calls. The plaintiff holds Comenity Bank responsible because it allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to call the plaintiff despite her request to stop calling her.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages of $500, statutory damages of $1,500, injunctive relief and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by Mark Ankcorn of Ankcorn Law Firm PLLC in Chicago.
