By Robert Hadley | Jun 14, 2016


TAMPA, Fla. (Legal Newsline) – A Florida physician is suing two skin care companies claiming their unsolicited fax campaign violates the 2005 Junk Fax Protection Act.

Dr. Steven Arkin, individually and on behalf of those similarly situated, filed a lawsuit on May 31 in U.S. District Court for the Tampa Division of the Middle District of Florida against Celapure LLC, AQ Skin Solutions Inc. and 10 unnamed defendants.

According to the complaint, the defendants sent Arkin and other class members unsolicited facsimile transmissions, expending paper and ink and preventing fax machine use while messages are received.
