CHICAGO (Legal Newsline) – A St. Petersburg, Florida resident alleges that several entities engaged in an illegal telemarketing scheme to sell health insurance.
Matthew Todd Beck, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a complaint on May 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division against GoHealth LLC, Norvax LLC and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Inc., doing business as Florida Blue, over alleged violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2014, he received telephone calls to his cellular telephone from defendants' agents advertising the sale of health insurance through automated and pre-recorded robocalls. The plaintiff claims he did not request information about health insurance and had not given his consent to be called.
The suit states that GoHealth and Norvax have principal places of business in Chicago.
The plaintiff holds GoHealth LLC, Norvax LLC and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly trespassed and interfered with his rights and interests and invaded his privacy.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory and treble damages, award attorneys’ fees, litigation expenses and costs of suit and such further and other relief the court deems reasonable and just. He is represented by Keith J. Keogh and Timothy J. Sostrin of Keogh Law LTD in Chicago.
