AT&T Sued For Helping Wife Prove Possible Affair
Husband suffered from 'embarrassment, self-revulsion...'

Back in May we noted how a Rogers customer had sued the company for "exposing" her affair. What did Rogers do? They started giving the couple a unified bill (including her mobile call records to her lover) after the couple decided to bundle services. Now a Pennsylvania Police chief is suing AT&T for helping his wife gain access to his phone records in order to prove he was communicating with an ex-girlfriend. According to the lawsuit, an AT&T rep voluntarily spent time helping the wife go through the husband's call records to prove he had been lying. This caused "psychological pain and suffering, as well as humiliation, shame, embarrassment, self-revulsion and damage to his self-esteem," according to the suit.
