August 21, 2018- KS&G has filed a class action lawsuit against Global Tel*Link Corporation, and DSI-ITI, LLC (collectively, "GTL"), on behalf of Pennsylvania residents who were incarcerated in correctional facilities throughout PA and utilized GTL's telephone services.
GTL is one of only a few companies that operates in the corrections market, offering integrated technology solutions to 2,300 facilities and 1.8 million inmates in 50 states, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. By providing telecommunications services to Pennsylvania correctional facilities, incarcerated persons are able to communicate with their family, friends, and others. Faced with no competition, PA prisoners have no choice but to use GTL's phone service to communicate with their loved ones. To make matters worse, the rates and fees associated with making these phone calls is exorbitant.
