business faces a class-action suit over allegations it unlawfully called
consumers to solicit its services.

complaint individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated
on March 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of

alleging violation of the
Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint,
the plaintiff alleges that beginning on Feb. 21, the defendant called
him to solicit its services without his permission. The plaintiff holds

injunctive relief, statutory damages, and other relief the court may deem
just. He is represented by Joshua Swigart and Kevin Lemieux of Hyde
