(Scroll down for video) A woman filed a lawsuit against Time Warner Cable after receiving more than 150 calls on her cellphone despite telling the company to stop harassing her, according to court documents in New York.

Now, a federal judge in Manhattan, has ordered Time Warner to pay the woman $229,000 in compensation.

Araceli King told the court that she received 153 automated calls intended for another person in less than a year. King of Irving, Texas, said that Time Warner Cable left messages for Luiz Perez.

The calls were made through a system meant for customers who were late with paying their bills. Time Warner Cable denied the charges, claiming that they believed to be calling Perez, who had consented to the calls.

A judge ordered the company to pay the woman $1,500 per call because any responsible company could have located Perez instead of harassing the woman.

The judge slammed Time Warner for continuing with the calls even after being sued.
