A TCPA temporary Loss but a Personal Win
« on: April 20, 2016 03:50:17 AM »
Hello All;

First I would like to thank you all for your past input and judgment.  With all of yours assistance, I was able to garner two FDCPA and one TCPA settlements.  That would not have been possible without all of you. 

I consider this a win (even though its a setback).

I filed a TCPA case, went all the way to default judgment.  While my motion for default was denied, I will say I was greedy (asking for treble damages and other tort claims... I didnt think they would just not respond) but the judge allowed me 30 days to correct the issues highlighted by her and refile.  I consider this a win in my book.  I received a 25 page opinion from a federal judge as a pro se, I couldn't ask for more.; I am proud of what I accomplished.  I will revise my complaint and re-attack, I just wanted to share.

It was also denied because you didn't state how you know it is the defendant who actually sent the text messages.  That's a really big part of your claim, and more important than the damages aspect.
