A proposed class action claims Gila, LLC, which does business as Municipal Services Bureau, violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by using automated dialing equipment to leave pre-recorded artificial messages on consumers’ cell phones. Filed in California, the suit argues the plaintiff began receiving calls from the defendant after contacting the Las Vegas Municipal Court over accumulated traffic tickets. While the plaintiff says she gave the Las Vegas court permission to contact her by cell phone, she did not give the same consent to the defendant, who the lawsuit says continued to call the plaintiff even though she sent multiple cease and desist correspondences.
