NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jonathan D. Selbin of the national plaintiffs' law firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, and Matthew R. Wilson of Meyer Wilson Co., LPA, announced today that a resident of Wisconsin has filed a nationwide class action lawsuit against Aetna charging that the company made repetitive and intrusive autodialed or pre-recorded telemarketing calls to the cell phones of consumers without first obtaining their consent to receive these calls, in violation of the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA"). The TCPA prohibits abusive telephone practices by marketers, lenders, and debt collectors, among others, and places strict limits on the use of autodialers or prerecorded voices to call or send texts to cell phones.
"Congress recognized that these types of marketing calls – made to consumers’ cell phones at all hours to solicit business, without any prior business relationship – are particularly unwelcome," commented plaintiff's counsel Selbin. "Through the class action mechanism, consumers can band together and compel companies like Aetna to comply with the law.”
