“What we are trying to do is provide a cost effective solution for family members whose loved ones are incarcerated. Paying upwards of $20 for a 15 minute phone call is a burden that our customers just cannot afford. The prison telephone providers are, as our lawsuit explains, simply put, not only inappropriately blocking these calls but they are also taking outrageous advantage of this targeted group of people with their monopolistic practices”, says Timothy Meade, President of Millicorp.
Millicorp filed the law suit against the aforementioned parties in an action for damages arising out of their alleged violations of the Communications Act of 1934 and the Telecommunications Act of 1996, as amended, 47 U.S.C &201 et. Seq., for common law tortious interference and for civil conspiracy to commit tortious interference, including the inappropriate blocking of calls.
