Woman Sues Cell Phone Company After Her Husband Discovers Her Affair

Gabriella Nagy of Toronto is suing Rogers Wireless, her cell phone provider, for breaking up her marriage. She argues that the company disclosed her call history to her husband, which revealed her secret affair. He left her. Now Nagy wants $600,000:

In 2007, Gabriella Nagy had a cellphone account with Rogers which sent the monthly bill to her home address in her maiden name. Her husband was the account holder for the family's cable TV service at the same address. Around June 4, 2007, he called Rogers to add internet and home phone.

The following month, Rogers mailed a “global” invoice for all of its services to the matrimonial home that included an itemized bill for Nagy's cellular service, according to the statement of claim filed in Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

When Nagy’s husband opened the Rogers invoice, he saw several hour-long phone calls to a single phone number.

Rogers WAS wrong in combining those bills. I lived in a rented house once that had a mother-in-law apartment behind it with no seperate address. Both tenants got their mail at the main address. Should the phone company have taken it upon themselves to combine both tenants service into one bill? Obviously not. That said, Rogers wasn't at fault for the marriage breakup, the wife was, so no case.

It's because of the moral and ethical knee jerk reaction most of you have just experienced that you haven't recognized the lawsuit is in regards to a cell phone company releasing personal information without the agreement of the account holder. Lucky for you 'sanctity-of-marriage' types, the fact that the husband was able to pair the internet/land line with the wireless account more than likely implies that he was an authorized user on the account who could have ordered a detailed bill filled with his wifes infidelities at any time. I really can't see how she has any viable legal recourse here. Frankly, serves her right.

This just in, local burglar sues alarm company for being caught.
In more recent events, an impaired driver caused a major accident yesterday, killing two unnamed people. Not much is known about the details, though the driver has mentioned a lawsuit to sue the automobile company for making the car involved the accident.

The two made-up examples are ridiculous, just like what this person is trying to do.
