LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) — A California corporation is suing the City of Buena Park and CARE Ambulance Service, Inc., California business, citing alleged unfair competition and violation of federal law.
AmeriCare MedServices, Inc. filed a complaint on Oct. 3, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against the defendants, alleging that they conspired in order to monopolize the pre-hospital emergency medical services and transport within the city.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that AmeriCare MedServices, Inc. suffered damages on behalf of the consumers who had to pay for lesser quality emergency services due to lack of competition. The plaintiff holds the City of Buena Park and CARE Ambulance Service, Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly entered into an agreement with one another to monopolize the city's emergency medical services, removing any potential competition and being able to freely control the prices and quality of the service.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a temporary restraining order against the defendant, judgment against the defendant, compensatory damages, interest, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. They are represented by Jarod Bona of Bona Law PC in La Jolla, California.
