HARRISBURG — A consumer is suing Titan Gas and Power, citing alleged unfair trade practices.

Gerard F. Jackson filed a complaint  in the Centre County Court of Common Pleas against the defendants, alleging they violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law. The defendants removed the case to U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania in November.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, between Aug. 29 and Sept. 5 he received numerous calls to his cellular telephone from defendants attempting to solicit their services. As a result, he has been statutorily damaged. The plaintiff holds Titan Gas and Alan Biney responsible because the defendants allegedly made calls using an automated telephone dialing system and even after he registered his telephone number on the Pennsylvania do-not-call list.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants, jointly and severally, in an amount of at least $81,600, costs, attorney's fees and all such other just and proper relief. He is represented by Jeremy Jackson of Bower Law Associates in State College.
