JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (Legal Newsline) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster has obtained a preliminary injunction against a Pennsylvania telemarketing company and its owner that prohibits them from calling Missourians on the No Call list.

Pennsylvania resident Jesse Levine and his company, Internet Technology Partnerships Inc., allegedly solicited consumers who used the drug Avandia and suffered side effects from its use in violation of the state No-Call registration.

The preliminary injunction prohibits the defendants from marketing in the state in violation of the telemarketing laws. The defendants consented to the preliminary injunction without admitting liability. A final ruling regarding the defendants' liability has not yet been made.

"Missouri's No-Call law is clear, and businesses should understand that we will stop them if they ignore the law," Koster said. "The attorney general's office will continue to aggressively pursue telemarketers who ignore our laws and continue to make prohibited calls."
