PHILADELPHIA - A consumer is suing Rhode Island company CVS Health and Does 1-10, citing alleged violation of telephone harassment statutes.
Karen Fennell of Lansdowne filed a complaint on April 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendants alleging that they violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she has suffered damages by continuously receiving calls on her cellular telephone even after making repeated requests for the calls to stop. The plaintiff holds CVS Health and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly called her using an automated telephone dialing system and/or using a prerecorded or artificial voice. None of the calls made were for emergency purposes, the suit says.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for statutory damages in the amount of $500, treble damages, and for such further relief as may be just and proper. She is represented by Sergei Lemberg of Lemberg Law LLC in Wilton, Connecticut.
