Hilton Resorts Corporation, d/b/a Hilton Grand Vacations – Class Action Filed
On December 5, 2017, a class action lawsuit was filed in United States District Court, Central District of California, seeking damages and other available legal or equitable remedies resulting from alleged violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) by Hilton Resorts Corporation, d/b/a Hilton Grand Vacations.
According to the class action complaint, Defendant Hilton Resorts Corporation, d/b/a Hilton Grand Vacations, “a business engaged in the sale of vacation timeshares and other hospitality services,” began in or around September 2016 contacting the Plaintiff’s cellular telephone in an effort to solicit the Plaintiff to purchase the services of Hilton Grand Vacations. Allegedly, the Plaintiff, who received multiple solicitation calls from Hilton Grand Vacations, revoked consent to call her cellular telephone in or about January 2017 “by expressly requesting Defendant to cease soliciting their services through calling Plaintiff on her cellular telephone.”
Defendant Hilton Resorts Corporation, d/b/a Hilton Grand Vacations, according to the complaint, used an automatic telephone dialing system to contact the Plaintiff to solicit its services from, among others, telephone numbers (407) 404-7353, (407) 404-7361, (403) 745-3152, (407) 745-3249, (407) 745-3219, and (407) 745-3208. Further, Hilton Grand Vacations did not have the Plaintiff’s prior express consent to receive telephone calls utilizing an automatic dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice. Additionally, the Plaintiff’s cellular telephone number was added to the National Do-Not-Call Registry on or about August 9, 2003.
The proposed TCPA class action lawsuit was brought on behalf of all persons in the United States who received any solicitation/telemarketing telephone calls from Hilton Resorts Corporation, d/b/a Hilton Grand Vacations, to such person’s cellular telephone made through the use of any automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice and such person had not previously consented, or had revoked any prior express consent, to receive such calls within the four years prior to the filing of the class action complaint.
The proposed TCPA class action lawsuit also was brought on behalf all persons in the United States registered on the National Do-Not-Call Registry for at least 30 days, who did not grant Defendant Hilton Resorts Corporation, d/b/a Hilton Grand Vacations, prior express consent, did not have a prior established business relationship, or who revoked consent and any prior established business relationship, and received more than one call made by or on behalf of the Defendant that promoted Defendant Hilton Grand Vacations’ products or services, within any 12-month period, within four years prior to the filing of the class action complaint.
