JACKSONVILLE – A Jacksonville consumer alleges he was harassed by frequent calls from a St. Petersburg corporation.
Robert Smith filed a complaint on Feb. 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida against Humana At Home 1 Inc. alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he has never provided his phone number to the defendant and that it began calling him in April 2015 in its attempt to reach an unknown person. The plaintiff holds Humana At Home 1 Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly continued to make calls despite plaintiff's explicit demand to stop the improper calls, and unlawfully utilized an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or pre-recorded voice.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants, statutory, punitive, and actual damages, and other relief the court may deem just. He is represented by Amanda J. Allen and William Peerce Howard of The Consumer Protection Firm PLLC in Tampa.
