LOS ANGELES — A California woman is suing a health care provider, alleging telephone harassment.
Carrie Beets filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, July 28 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Molina Healthcare Inc., alleging violation the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, in April, Beets received at least two calls on her cellular telephone. The suit says she has suffered multiple involuntary telephone and electrical charges, aggravation, nuisance and invasion of privacy.
The plaintiff alleges Molina continued to call her despite her request to cease all communications, made calls using an auto-dialer and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice and that calls were made without Beets' prior express written consent.
Beets seeks a trial by jury, seeks certification for this case to be a proper class action, compensation for all damages, attorney fees, legal costs and such other relief the court deems proper. She is represented by attorneys L. Timothy Fisher, Annick M. Persinger and Yeremey O. Krivoshey of Bursor & Fisher PA in Walnut Creek, and Scott A. Bursor of the same firm in New York.
