HARTFORD, Conn. (Legal Newsline) — A Florida woman is suing a New Hampshire telemarketer, alleging violation of telephone harassment statutes.
Mary Mace filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Aug. 22 in U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut against Why Not Lease It LLC, also known as Tempoe LLC, alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, in March, Mace began receiving calls on her cellular telephone despite never providing the defendant her phone number and/or prior express consent. The suit says she was caused to suffer actual harm and monetary injury by depleting the limited minutes on her phone plan, causing her to be annoyed, frustrated, distracted and inconvenienced.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant placed unsolicited telephone calls marketing its services for renting merchandise and continued to make calls despite being requested to cease calling her.
Mace seeks trial by jury, statutory damages of $500 for each violation, treble damages up to $1,500 for each TCPA violation, attorney fees, court costs and all other relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by attorney Sergei Lemberg of Lemberg Law LLC in Wilton, Connecticut.
