Woman sues Kohl's over alleged calls made to her cell

By The Penn Record | Feb 4, 2015

PITTSBURGH - A Flinton woman sued Kohl's Department Stores on Dec. 26 for allegedly violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

Melody Stoops alleged in her suit that Kohl's violated the TCPA by placing several calls to her cell phone using either an automatic dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice.

She alleged the calls were not made for emergency purposes or with her consent, and that her cellular phone number was not intended to be ported from a wireline service.

Stoops is seeking between $500 and $1,500 in statutory damages for each call. She is represented by Brett Freeman, of Sabatini Law Firm in Dunmore.

On Jan. 26, the defendant removed the case to U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.

The removal notice says there is a presence of a federal question, giving the federal court jurisdiction.

Kohl's is represented by Michael J. Parrish, Jr. of Spence, Custer, Saylor, Wolfe & Rose in Johnsontown, as well as the Parsippany, N.J., firm Kelley Drye & Warren.

U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania case number 3:15-cv-00025.
