Gabriella Nagy: Woman Sues Rogers For Ruining Her Marriage
A Woman Is Suing Cellphone Provider Rogers For Ruining Her Marriage
Gabriella Nagy was having an affair and in July 2007 her husband only found out because Rogers bundled their cellphone bills together and when her husband saw it, he left her. Now Ms. Nagy is suing Rogers for causing the breakdown of her marriage.
She is seeking $600,000 for breach of contract and alleged invasion of privacy, but Rogers says they cannot be responsible for the breakup of Ms. Nagy's marriage according to the Globe and Mail.
“As a consequence of her husband's said departure, the plaintiff wept uncontrollably at her workplace, did so in the presence of other employees, distracted them, was unfocused and became incapable of performing her employment duties,” the statement of claim says.
On October 10 2007 Ms. Nagy was fired from her job as she could not return to a normal work function.
It was not until Mr. Nagy signed up for Rogers Internet and home phone that Rogers bundled all three bills in to one to send to the house. The bill was addressed to Mr. Nagy and in the detailed cellphone bill account it showed all of the calls Ms. Nagy was making and receiving. She says that the situation was made worse after her lover harassed her and her husband after she broke up with him.
Rogers just says she has no claims for the case.
“The marriage breakup apparently resulted from the fact the plaintiff was having an extramarital affair, a fact admitted in the statement of claim,” the company’s statement of defence reads.
“Rogers is not responsible for the plaintiff's affair or its consequences.”
