The FTC obtained injunctions against a corporation and it's CEO for, among other things, telemarketing violations concerning the National Do Not Call Registry.
The FTC's Complaint alleged that Alliance Security, Inc. ("Alliance Security") and its CEO, Jasjit Gotra, violated the FTC Telemarketing Sales Rule by contacting phone numbers listed on the National Do Not Call ("DNC") Registry. The FTC further alleged that Alliance Security and Mr. Gotra obtained reports on consumers from consumer reporting agencies without a "permissible" purpose.
The U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts (the "Court") permanently enjoined Alliance Security from (i) telemarketing and (ii) using consumer credit reports without obtaining written authorization. The Court suspended a $9,845,021 judgment against Alliance Security due to its inability to pay.
Separately, the Court imposed a preliminary injunction against Mr. Gotra as the case proceeds. Until there is a resolution of the litigation, the Court barred Mr. Gotra from (i) engaging in telemarketing or (ii) using consumer credit reports without obtaining written authorization.
