Company Requests Access to ‘Professional’ Plaintiff’s Prior Testimony: A New Jersey resident, Jan Konopca, has filed “at least 31 cases in [New Jersey] based on phone calls that – far from being unwanted – were actively sought after by Mr. Konopca in his capacity as a serial, professional TCPA plaintiff,” according to a letter from Comcast to U.S. Magistrate Judge Douglas Arpert. Now, Comcast is a defendant in one of these 31 cases and has asked a federal Judge Arpert to compel a New Jersey plaintiffs firm to hand over transcripts of depositions given by Konopca.
