CHICAGO — A physician has filed a class action lawsuit against Epatients.com Inc. and 10 John Does, alleging violation of telephone harassment statutes.
Dr. William P. Gress filed a complaint on Feb. 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against the defendants, alleging Epatients sent him an unsolicited fax advertisement.
