Finn Law Group Files Suit against The Berkley Group Inc. on Behalf of Several Timeshare Owners

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of several timeshare owners against The Berkley Group Inc. alleging that the timeshare resort developer and its subsidiaries engaged in unfair consumer collections practices that violated state and federal law and invaded the privacy of the timeshare owners. The suit, Yeremenko, et al. v. The Berkley Group Inc., et al., case no. CACE-13-028175, was filed on Dec. 31 in the 17th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, in Broward County. The suit alleges that The Berkley Group and its subsidiaries began contacting the timeshare owners at the Grandview at Las Vegas located in Las Vegas, Nevada and Vacation Village at Parkway located in Kissimmee, Florida, using an automated dialing system. The harassing calls led the plaintiffs to believe they had to choose between paying an alleged debt or they would continue to receive the misdirected communications. The timeshare owners hired The Finn Law Group and the law firm notified the defendants of its representation. Despite the notice, The Berkley Group and its subsidiaries continued its debt collection attempts. The complaint alleges violations of Florida's Unfair Debt Collections Practices Act, the federal Telephone Communications Protection Act and invasion of privacy. The timeshare owners seek an injunction that would put an end to this resort's debt collection phone calls and letters as well as an award of damages, costs, attorneys' fees and other relief the court deems proper.
