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.

She's an idiot. It's bad enough that she's cowardly enough to go behind her husband's back to sleep with someone else, but her entitled behavior as a result of her own stupidity is even worse. People with entitlement issues like this need to be smacked.

In the full article the woman claims that Rogers breeched her contract and ruined her life. What about the 'contract' she had with her husband? That may have had a little something to do with it as well.

What a loser! She got everything she deserved.

Sure, she's an idiot. But isn't anyone here just a bit concerned about the privacy issue? Rogers disclosed one client's information to another. Suppose it had been two tenants at the same address...

Even as a lawyer, I think this is a ridiculous lawsuit. The phone bill is not the cause of the failed marriage. The husband would not have left her due to receiving a phone bill, absent the cheating. Crap like this gives us lawyers a bad name.

Not even sure why she cares that her marriage broke up... I mean, she was having an affair. Some people are a little unclear on some things. Let's hope the courts do the right thing here. Husb should sue her for breach of contract.

lol the lawyer's comment up there: 'even as a lawyer...'

I'm on her side. Being good and being right are two different things.

I would be pissed off too if someone just assumed it was OK to consolidate my bills with someone else's, whether or not we were married or whether I had anything to hide from that person. Rogers really screwed up and should pay for it.

its normal procedure and being taught everday that women think they hold all the cards--if they cheat they threatin divorce if a man catches them-and if a man cheats they threatin divorce--its time to make examples out of women who are abuser and cheaters--and they should get nothing -not even the close on their back and men should get the children-LAWS NEED TO BE CHANGED TO PROTECT MEN--LAWS ARE ALREADY IN PLACE TO PROTECT WOMEN-MEN are fools if they marry a woman in this day and age--and DNA OR IT AINT NO WAY-

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.

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.

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.
