HOUSTON – A Houston woman alleges a McKinney-based life and health insurance product provider is calling her without her consent.
Danielle Latrice Young filed a complaint on Jan. 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas against Torchmark Corp., doing business as American Income Life Insurance, alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff submitted some of her financial information to the defendant in 2017 for insurance quotes and later decided she no longer wanted the defendant's services. She alleges in December 2017, the defendant solicited her through phone calls and she instructed a representative to stop calling her. She alleges the calls have continued.
The plaintiff holds Torchmark Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly called her using an automatic telephone dialing system without her consent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks award damages of at least $500 per phone call and treble damages, court costs, to enjoin the defendant and any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Nathan C. Volheim and Taxiarchis Hatzidimitriadis of Sulaiman Law Group LTD in Lombard, Illinois.
