Paula Reed Ward reports:
The police chief for Industry filed a lawsuit against AT&T Mobility recently, claiming the company improperly released his cell phone records to his wife.
Garold Ray Miller filed the claim for invasion of privacy in Beaver County last month, but it was moved to federal court on Tuesday.

Marty Richter, a spokesman for AT&T, would not comment on the pending litigation.
