Diana Akkawi, et al. v. Kasra Sadr, et al.

Defendants are alleged to have improperly accessed and/or acquired confidential personal information.

We currently represent the Plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of California in Sacramento, California with Case Number 2:20-CV-01034-MCE-AC (“Lawsuit”).  Kasra Sadr, The Car Law Firm, The Sadr Law Firm, Nationwide VIN Marketing, and Ryan Bancaya, have been named as Defendants in the Lawsuit.

The Plaintiffs’ Complaint alleges that the Defendants violated 18 U.S.C. § 2721 et seq. (aka Driver’s Privacy Protection Act or “DPPA”) and Cal. Veh. Code § 1808 et seq. (aka the California Driver’s Privacy Protection Act or “CDPPA”) by illegally accessing their personal information held with the DMV (as defined in the DPPA and CDPPA), either directly or indirectly.  Our clients are not unique in that we believe that thousands of other individuals, yourself included, has had their personal information accessed by the Defendants or their agents.  Within less than a year of our clients’ purchasing their respective vehicles, they received a letter (sometimes two letters) from some of the Defendants seeking to solicit legal business on the basis that the Plaintiffs allegedly purchased a vehicle with undisclosed frame damage.

It has come to our attention that you may have been similarly contacted by either Kasra Sadr and or the other Defendants in the Lawsuit. We received this information by way of a subpoena that was issued to The Mailing Group, a third-party vendor who may have sent a solicitation letter to you on behalf of the Defendants.

If this is the case, we believe that you may have information and/or evidence that may be helpful in furthering our case and establishing Defendants’ violation of the DPPA and CDPPA.

Thank you in advance for your courtesy and cooperation.
