BECKLEY — An estate administrator is suing CVS, alleging violation of West Virginia's public policy.
Shana Harper of Raleigh County, as the administrator of the estate of Merritt Harper, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a class action complaint Dec. 19 in Raleigh Circuit Court against Health Corp., CVS Pharmacy Inc. and John Doe Billing Companies 1-10, alleging violation of the West Virginia Consumer Credit and Protection Act.
According to the complaint, Harper was damaged by being forced to pay excessive charges to obtain medical records of Merritt Harper. The plaintiff alleges the defendants refused to provide medical records unless payments exceeding the amount permitted by law were made to the CVS defendants.
Harper seeks trial by jury, judgment in her favor in an amount sufficient to fully compensate her for all damages, plus interest, attorney fees and costs of court. She is represented by attorneys Stephen P. New and Amanda Taylor of The Law Office of Stephen P. New in Beckley.
