The Toronto Star reports Gabriella Nagy is suing Rogers
Wireless, Inc. for $600,000 for invasion of privacy and breach of contract.
The newspaper reports that in 2007, Rogers sent a monthly bill for Nagy's
cell phone to her home under her maiden name. In June of that year, her
husband decided to add Rogers internet and home phone service to the house.
The Star reports the following month that Rogers mailed a "global" invoice
to the Nagy home that included an itemized bill for Nagy's cell phone
service. Nagy's husband discovered several hour-long phone calls to a single
Nagy tells the paper that her husband called the number and the person on
the other end confirmed the affair.
"My husband didn't tell me that's how he found out, he just left," said
The statement of claim alleges that Rogers "unilaterally terminated its
cellular contract with the plaintiff that had been in her maiden name and
included it in the husband?s account that was under his surname."
Rogers, in a statement of defense, denies terminating Nagy's contract. It
also says the company "cannot be held responsible for the condition of the
marriage, for the plaintiff's affair and consequential marriage break-up,
nor the effects the break-up has had on her." Rogers does admit
consolidating invoices sent to the couple, saying it saved the couple money
and increased administrative efficiency.
