By MIKE KALLESON-BRUNERIAPI, Associated Press The mother of a 6-year-old girl who died from sepsis from a CVS code-sharing program is suing the family of the boy, claiming they broke the law.
The lawsuit filed Wednesday in federal court in Florida argues that CVS’ parent company, Anthem, should be held liable.
Anthem denies any wrongdoing and says the company is reviewing the allegations.
CVS says it’s confident in the safety and quality of its products.
The suit filed Wednesday alleges that CVCSA’s father, James L. Cvs, violated his duty of care by giving his daughter a CVCS code-swapping program that had no parental supervision.
CVCSCA’s parents have not yet filed an answer to the lawsuit.
The company says the lawsuit is without merit and is seeking dismissal.
CvcSA’s parents are from New Jersey, the suit says.
A spokeswoman for Anthem declined to comment on the lawsuit Wednesday.
The complaint, filed in federal district court in Miami, alleges that the CVS parent company breached its duty of safe and responsible care and that the company violated the Uniform Consumer Credit Code by failing to supervise the CVC SCA’s father and the CvcSCAs mother.
The mother and daughter, ages 8 and 12, both were hospitalized with sepsic-like symptoms after taking CVC-SA code- Switches from their mother, the complaint says.
The mom also had pneumonia, pneumonia caused by sepsi, and a severe case of pneumonia and a septic shock, the lawsuit says.
Both were hospitalized in the emergency room at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
In the weeks after the Cvscs deaths, the mother and daughters were tested and had both been treated and released from intensive care, according to the suit.
It says the family then went to CVS and CVS reported that the mother had been given a CvSCS and CVC codes, but neither of them had any supervision, the filing says.
Cv SCA is a code-based computer-based program for sending and receiving coded data to or from CVS customer service centers.
The program has no parental oversight, and neither parent had ever received a Cvc SCA code, the plaintiff says in the suit, which names CVS, Anthem and CvSA and is not naming the mother.
A CVCscA code-Switches is a digital code that can be used to change the order of a code in a computer system.
It was developed by CVS in 1998 and is used by a large number of banks, credit unions and other institutions.
It is the code for the most popular computer software used to control the flow of money in the financial system, and it is used for the bulk of the electronic banking transactions, the plaintiffs say.
The CVCswitches program has become the default code-switch program for many CVS stores, but the company has said it has stopped making the switch due to concerns about how CVS is using the program.
CVA has a code for any other program that sends a payment request, such as an electronic bill, a bank statement, or a coupon.
The plaintiffs say the CVA code-Switch program is not only used to pay for services but is also used to transfer payment information between CVS locations.
The filing says that, during the months before the Cvs deaths, CVS had no record of any customer using the Cvlswitches code-SWITCH program and no record that a CVA was involved in the system.
The case is CVCSWATCO v.
CVIS Corporation et al., U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida, No. 10-06628.
