Attorneys with Kazerouni Law Group, APC & Hyde & Swigart recently filed 77 separate federal lawsuits against one of the country’s largest non-bank mortgage loan servicers, Ocwen Financial Corporation, for harassing consumers with thousands of automated telephone calls. Case 8:17-cv-00834-JVS-DFM Carson Ezati v. Ocwen Mortgage Servicing, Inc, et al.
In complaints filed on behalf of 77 Ocwen customers in California, Washington, Colorado, Texas, Illinois, Florida, Minnesota, and Michigan, Kazerouni Law Group, APC & Hyde & Swigart allege that for years, the overly aggressive mortgage servicer intentionally robocalled its consumers—often making dozens of calls per day for a period of years—without those consumers’ consent to be called or after consent to be called was revoked. In the majority of these cases, each of the plaintiffs allege that they received over one thousand telephone calls to their cellular telephones. Federal law prohibits businesses from autodialing customers without their consent. Violators of this law must pay the call recipients statutory damages. The plaintiffs also alleged state law claims premised upon Ocwen’s systematic pattern of harassment.
Ocwen is also the defendant in lawsuits recently filed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and attorneys general of 22 states for unlawful and harassing treatment of its customers.
Kazerouni Law Group, APC & Hyde & Swigart are both California based consumer protection law firms with offices in California, Washington, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Texas, Minnesota, and Michigan.
