CHICAGO — Four people have filed a class action lawsuit against West Interactive Services Corporation, citing alleged violation of telephone harassment statutes.
Jason Nesbit, Stephanie Stordahl, Linda Hobbs and Shannon Charles filed a complaint on behalf of similarly situated individuals on Jan. 20 in Cook County Circuit Court against West Interactive Services Corporation, alleging that the Illinois business made "robocalls" to the plaintiffs' cellular telephones using an artificial voice.
West Interactive Services removed the case to Chicago federal court.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they sustained damages from the "robocall" practice, under which the defendant allegedly made unsolicited phone calls to the plaintiffs' mobile phones in violation of the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek actual or statutory damages, an injunction against the defendant, interest, court costs and any further relief this court grants. They are represented by Myles McGuire, Evan M. Meyers and Eugene Y. Turin of McGuire Law, P.C. in Chicago.
