Carney Client Granted Continuance

Share this content:
Direct mailer First National Credit was granted a continuance last week to its opposition of a temporary restraining order obtained by its former list broker Carney Direct Marketing.

Carney has charged that FNC reused almost 600,000 names provided for a previous mailing without approval or payment. Carney won the temporary restraining order June 7 in Orange County, CA, Superior Court.

On June 28, the court granted the continuance to FNC giving the company an extra 30 days to prevent the court from granting a preliminary injunction against it to Carney. Though a court date has been set for July 28, Carney officials said they hope to settle the matter before another court appearance.

"In the meantime, we're going to see if we can get them to the table because we do have a very strong case, especially in terms of what they owe us," said Diana Arroyo, vice president of operations at Carney Direct Marketing, Irvine, CA.

Carney claims it is owed $281,900.35 in unpaid list invoices. FNC has denied the allegations.
