A Settlement Agreement has been reached in a class action lawsuit contending that Cenlar Agency, Inc. (“Cenlar”) violated the law by placing in excess of two telephone calls in a seven-day period to Massachusetts consumers to collect a debt.

A federal court authorized this notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

The lawsuit is called Ely Gemborys v. Cenlar Agency, Inc., 4:20-cv-40006, and it is pending in United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts. In the lawsuit, Ely Gemborys, the Plaintiff, alleges that Cenlar, the Defendant, violated the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act, M.G.L. c. 93A § 2, et seq. (“MCPA”), and the Massachusetts Debt Collection Regulations, 940 CMR § 7.00, et seq. (“MDCR”), by placing in excess of two calls regarding a debt within a seven-day period to Plaintiff and other Massachusetts consumers.
Cenlar contends that it did not make any calls to Plaintiff as alleged in the Complaint, and that any calls to Plaintiff were in fact made by Cenlar FSB. Cenlar denies any wrongdoing, denies that it violated the MCPA, the MDCR or any other law.
Both sides have agreed to settle the lawsuit to avoid the cost, delay, and uncertainty of further litigation.
