According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in February, she began receiving calls to her cellular telephone without her prior express permission. The plaintiff holds Kohl's Corporation responsible because the defendant allegedly was attempting to call an unknown third party and made calls using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or prerecorded or artificial voice. Said calls were not made for emergency purposes, the suit says
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for actual damages, statutory damages, treble damages and any other relief deemed appropriate. She is represented by Amy Lynn Bennecoff Ginsburg of Kimmel & Silverman PC in Ambler.
