A San Bernardino County resident is trying to get a class-action suit off the ground alleging that Charter violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. 

Charter Communications is facing a second class-action suit related to alleged robocalling in California.

According to Law360, San Bernardino County resident Steve Gallion is trying to get a class-action suit off the ground, alleging that Charter violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act earlier this year when it automatically dialed his mobile phone to push Spectrum internet, TV and landline services. 

“Plaintiff is not a customer of defendants’ services and has never provided any personal information, including his cellular telephone number, to defendants for any purpose whatsoever,” the complaint said.

In February, San Diego resident Anton Ewing filed a similar class-action complaint against Charter, which entered the California market last year when it acquired Time Warner Cable. 

Ewing said he’s listed on the Federal Do Not Call registry and that he’d warned TWC in 2015 not to call him with sales pitches. 

Charter reps didn’t immediately respond to FierceCable’s inquiry for comment. 

These complaints have led to expensive judgments and fines for telecom operators. Last month, for example, Dish Network agreed to pay $280 million in civil penalties after attorney generals in California, Illinois, North Carolina, and Ohio spent eight years pressing alleged Do-Not-Call violations in federal court.
