Severson & Werson attorney David Berkley recently prevailed on a claimants’ suit for damages under the TCPA, the FDCPA and for violation of common law privacy rights in a AAA arbitration. The arbitrator found that the calls at issue were not placed by an ATDS governed by the TCPA. The arbitrator also found that FDCPA case and common law claims were meritless as the calls—although fairly numerous—were not placed with an intent to harass and were not unreasonable under the circumstances. The AAA arbitrator also awarded Severson’s client—a major auto finance institution—an award for the balance owed on the Claimant’s vehicle and awarded Severson its reasonable attorney’s fees incurred in pursuing the counter-claim. Hence Severson’s client enjoyed a complete victory.
