In a bizarre turn of events, a West Virginia woman has taken legal action against several companies and individuals over incessant phone calls she received regarding the Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit.
Diana Mey of Wheeling claims that she was bombarded with persistent calls from a spoofed number, urging her to join the lawsuit against the U.S. Marine Corps. Despite expressing disinterest and asking for the calls to cease, Mey alleges that the calls continued unabated.
In her lawsuit, Mey cites the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which is designed to safeguard consumers from the vexing and intrusive behavior of telemarketers.
The lawsuit could potentially escalate into a class action suit, drawing in other individuals who were similarly harassed and solicited by the defendants.
The defendants named in the lawsuit include Levin Papantonio Rafferty Proctor Buchanan O’Brien Barr and Mougey, Principal Law Group, MCM Service Group, and several unidentified individuals referred to as John Does.
As the legal battle unfolds, it remains to be seen whether Mey and other potential plaintiffs will succeed in seeking retribution for the distress caused by the incessant and unwelcome phone calls.
