SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Scottsdale, Arizona-based Eye Level Holdings, LLC d/b/a JAWA, a company founded by Jason Hope and one of the fastest-growing companies in the Southwest, released the following statement regarding lawsuits filed on behalf of Verizon Wireless and the State of Texas: "We are disappointed and distressed that the Texas Attorney General and Verizon Wireless have filed these two lawsuits which are designed to significantly harm our business and stifle our right to speak freely with our customers. We strongly deny the allegations and note that neither the Texas Attorney General nor Verizon sought to contact JAWA prior to initiating these cases. JAWA has not been made aware of any customer complaints in Texas to date, and neither have we been contacted by the Attorney General to inform us of such matters. JAWA learned of these allegations on March 8, 2011. JAWA looks forward to resolving this matter while protecting its right to operate a legitimate business. JAWA hopes that others do not let this misinformed, tortious and damaging conduct by an uninformed few lead others to take misguided action that would conspire with Verizon to do us irreparable injury."
