Woman files lawsuit after repeated calls about Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit

A West Virginia woman has filed a lawsuit that could become a class action over phone calls she received about the Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit.

A West Virginia woman has filed a lawsuit that could become a class action over phone calls she received about the Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuit.

Diana Mey of Wheeling filed suit against Levin Papantonio Rafferty Proctor Buchanan O’Brien Barr and Mougey, Principal Law Group, MCM Service Group and John Doe defendants.

Mey said she started receiving solicitation calls to join the Camp Lejeune suit on Jan. 24 from a number similar to hers, a spoofed number. She claims she received four calls that day.

After many more calls over about a week, Mey said she was not interested in the legal representation and asked for the calls to stop.

Despite this request, Mey says she was called back in back less than one hour later to again ask her to sign up as a client.

In her lawsuit, Mey cites the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which is a federal statute to protect consumers from nuisance telemarketers.

Annette is originally a Midwest gal, born and raised in Michigan, but with career stops in many surrounding states, the Pacific Northwest, and various parts of the southeast. An award-winning journalist and mother of four, Annette moved to eastern North Carolina in 2019 to be closer to family – in particular, her two young grandchildren. It’s possible that a -27 day with a -68 windchill in Minnesota may have also played a role in that decision. In her spare time, Annette does a lot of kiddo cuddling, reading, and producing the coolest Halloween costumes anyone has ever seen. She has also worked as a diversity and inclusion facilitator serving school districts and large corporations. It’s the people that make this beautiful area special, and she wants to share those stories that touch the hearts of others.
