Anthony Clark says that for the past year, he's gotten repeated calls from a Utah company that sells Mormon religious DVDs and that its computers keep calling him even though he's asked the company to knock it off.
Yesterday, Clark filed a federal lawsuit against Living Scriptures of Ogden, UT, demanding the company get its "automated telephone dialer system" to stop calling him - and to pay him $1,500 for each of the calls, of which he says he sometimes gets three a week.
In his suit, filed in US District Court in Boston, Clark said he never asked the company to contact him and that the repeated calls violate a federal law against such repeat nonsense.
Clark says he can tell the calls are computer generated because when he picks up his phone, he hears silence, followed a couple of seconds later by a live operator - something that would only happen with "predictive dialing."
