The State of Illinois filed a lawsuit last week against Kensington Service Group, a Chicago mergers and acquisitions company, alleging the company violated telemarketing laws by calling consumers on the National Do Not Call Registry.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan's office claims it has received more than 50 complaints from consumers about telemarketing calls from the company since 2012.
The state is seeking an injunction prohibiting Kensington from committing additional violations, damages in the amount of $500 to $1,500 for each violation, all legal costs and other relief.
The State is represented by assistant attorneys general Thomas James in Chicago and Philip Heimlich in Springfield.
