A U.S. woman rescued with her family from a Pacific Ocean sailboat after her infant daughter became ill has filed suit against her satellite phone company for cutting off service, a move she said led the family to seek an emergency rescue and ultimately to scuttle their boat, her lawyers said on Tuesday. The complaint filed in San Diego Superior Court by Charlotte Kaufman on Monday alleges that Whenever Communications LLC deactivated the family’s satellite phone’s SIM card even though the family’s $240 a month bill had been paid in full since August 2012.
