PHILADELPHIA — A Conshohocken woman is suing the University of Phoenix, alleging repeated calls from the defendant that incurred charges for the plaintiff.

Ciara Connolly filed a lawsuit June 10 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against The University of Phoenix Inc, alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

According to the complaint, Connolly began to receive calls from University of Phoenix on her cellular phone in February 2015. The university used an automated telephone dialer system and prerecorded or automated voices, the suit states, which the plaintiff heard when she answered the calls.

On Feb. 20, 2015, the lawsuit states, the plaintiff mailed the university a letter, asking that all calls to her phone be stopped. However, the calls continued, the suit states, which incurred fees for the plaintiff.

Connolly seeks damages of $500 for each violation, treble damages for each violation and other relief deemed just and proper, plus a jury trial. She is represented by attorney Jody B. Burton of Lemberg Law LLC in Stamford, Connecticut.
