LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) - A California man is suing two health insurance companies, alleging they texted his cellphone without his consent.
Jason Alan, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit May 10 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Vital One Health and Aetna Life Insurance Company, doing business as Coventry Healthcare, alleging negligent and willful violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
