Gallup, Inc., the global consulting company whose name is synonymous with public opinion polling, is the defendant in a proposed class action lawsuit in which a California man claims the company ran afoul of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Alleging TCPA abuses and invasions of consumers’ privacy, the 11-page lawsuit claims Gallup “negligently and/or intentionally” used a prohibited automatic dialing system utilizing a prerecorded voice message to call cell phones nationwide without consent. The plaintiff, who claims in the complaint that his cell number has been in the National Do Not Call Registry since 2004, alleges he was “harassed” by Gallup’s robo-dialed calls that he received in November 2016.
