Orlando, FL asked in Business Law, Criminal Law, Personal Injury and Communications Law for Florida

Q: Can I use a company for one of their employees logging into my account and giving someone else my personal information?

My ex asked one of her friends in New York who she claims works for spectrum. The persons brother also said that they asked her to dig into my stuff so that they could find out information I have text from both of them saying so. They have exact time and text messages that I never even showed anyone. They know things they shouldn’t know and when I try to call my service provider it’s almost like no one wants to help me in fear of a lawsuit most likely. I never gave anyone permission to do this.

A: As I understand your question, you believe that an employee of the service provider, Spectrum, furnished text messages to or from you. In order to successfully sue the company, you would have to show that disclosure occurred, the service provider authorized the employee to disclose the information, and that you have been damaged.
