consumer - arbitration - motion to compel rejected

Schwartz v. Credit One – ED Pa. – October 14, 2015



Plaintiff sued Defendant under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 USC 227 et seq., for its repeated telephone calls to her concerning her son’s credit car account with Defendant, with whom Plaintiff also had an account.


The court rejected Defendant’s motion to compel arbitration, since the parties’ agreement concerned only their contractual disputes and not any concerning a dispute between Defendant and Plaintiff’s son.
