The McClatchy Company “negligently or intentionally” violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) when it contacted consumers’ cell phones without consent, a proposed class action lawsuit claims. The California man who filed the action claims he never entered into a business relationship with the defendant before he began receiving calls to his cell phone. Allegedly, the calls began with a prerecorded voice message and were placed using an automatic dialing system. After the plaintiff repeatedly informed the defendant that they were contacting the wrong individual and even placed his number on the National Do Not Call list, the robocalls persisted, the case claims.
