PHILADELPHIA — A group of consumers filed a class-action lawsuit against ICOT Hearing Systems LLC, which does business as ListenClear, and 10 unnamed individuals, alleging that the defendants invaded their privacy.
Lead plaintiffs John Galloway and Zachary Galloway filed a complaint June 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, citing a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the Galloways were contacted by the defendants on April 24 in an attempt to get them to purchase ListenClear's services. As a result of defendants illegal calls, the plaintiffs claim they incurred cell phone charges or reduced telephone time for which they had previously paid.
The plaintiffs said they hold the defendants responsible because they allegedly made calls using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice and contacted the plaintiffs without their prior express consent.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek statutory damages of $500 for each violation, treble damages of $1,500 for each willful violation and other just and proper relief. They are represented by Cynthia Z. Levin of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in King of Prussia.
