PITTSBURGH — An insurance company has filed a class action lawsuit against Career Advantage of Mahoning Valley Inc. and related entities, citing alleged conversion and violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
Robert Carr Insurance Agency Inc. filed a complaint on behalf of itself and all others similarly situated on Oct. 17 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against the defendants, alleging they sent unsolicited fax advertisements.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 5, Robert Carr Insurance Agency Inc. received an unsolicited fax advertisement that was sent, or caused to be sent, by the defendants. It never gave permission to anyone to send the fax advertisement and never conducted any business with defendants, the suit claims.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to include a compliant opt-out notice and knew or should have known that their misappropriation of paper, toner and employee time was wrongful and without authorization.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks that the present case be properly maintained as a class action, appoint plaintiff as the representative of the class, and appoint plaintiff's counsel as class counsel. Additionally, plaintiff seeks damages, punitive damages, attorney’s fees, costs of suit and other further relief as it may deem just and proper.
They are represented by Taylor Gillan of Feinstein Doyle Payne & Kravec LLC in Pittsburgh and Nyran Rose Rasche, Anthony Fata and Christopher P.T. Tourek of Cafferty Clobes Meriwether & Sprengel LLP in Chicago.
The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania Case No. is 2:18-cv-01393-DSC.
