Explaining the Meaning and Purpose of a Notice to ConsumerApril 18, 2022
Perhaps you have received a notice of intent to consumer, or perhaps you have been told one will be sent in the course of your lawsuit, and now you want to know exactly what that is and what it means for you or the recipient.
In California you have a right to privacy of your information. If you are not a party to a lawsuit and someone who is asks for something involving your confidential information, then they are required to give you a notice of their intent to obtain it. This is a chance for you to stop the subpoena and deny them access to your private information. Look over the subpoena and determine whether you want those records to be provided. You can then check a box to deny them access.
The document you may have received is called a notice to consumer because it often involves information from banks, financial accounts, hotel reservations, or prior transactions in which you were a consumer and not a party to the case. Sometimes the notice to consumer will come directly from the photocopy company, but it has the same effect as if it came from the attorney. Watch the video to learn more.
