TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Attorney General's Office has filed a lawsuit against a gourp of Utah-based medical device companies for violating the state's Do Not Call Act.
Last year, the attorney general's office received numerous complaints from Kansans who received telemarketing calls that said they were eligible to receive a medical alert device. A consumer alert was posted about the calls in August 2013.
Last month, Attorney General Derek Schmidt sued Benjamin D. George, Jody C. Rookstool, KMR Medical, LLC, KPM Capital, LLC, Arizona Medical Supply, LLC d/b/a Western Medical Supply and Medical Pendant Billing, LLC d/b/a US Lifecare.
The lawsuit alleges they violated the Kansas No Call Act by calling Kansas consumers on the Do-Not-Call list. The suit seeks injunctive relief, civil penalties and investigative fees.
