Judge Curbs Miss Cleo Calls, but She Knew That

January 27, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A judge has ordered the marketers behind television psychic Miss Cleo to stop calling customers who have asked not to be contacted and to stop pressuring people to pay for calls they are disputing.

Cambria County Judge Gerard Long in Johnstown, Pa., signed a preliminary injunction last week against Psychic Readers Network and its billing agent, the Pennsylvania attorney general's office said.

A state lawsuit accuses the Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based companies of violating the state's Telemarketing Registration Act.
