Ocwen Loan Servicing TCPA Settlement Notes
- Snyder, et al. v. Ocwen Loan Servicing LLC
- Case No. 1:14-cv-08461
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois
Consumer plaintiffs Keith Snyder, Susan Mansanarez, and Tracee Beecroft filed this putative nationwide class action lawsuit against Ocwen Loan Servicing, alleging violations of the telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by using an automatic telephone dialing system to call cell phones without proper consent,
Under the TCPA, automated calls to cell phones without prior consent is prohibited. Specifically, the plaintiffs contend that during the applicable period, Ocwen failed to implement a policy for obtaining consent prior to calling consumers’ cell phones using its Aspect automatic telephone dialing system. As a result, Ocwen placed nearly 106,000 unauthorized calls to 1,685,757 unique cellphone numbers between Oct. 27, 2010 and Oct. 6, 2017, according to court documents.
In addition to paying settlement awards to Settlement Class Members, the $17.5 million settlement fund will be used to pay attorneys’ fees and court costs, any service awards to each of the three Class Representatives, settlement administration, and a possible charitable contribution if there are uncashed settlement award checks.
Ocwen denies it did anything wrong, or that this case is appropriate treatment as a class action but has agreed to settle claims to avoid further litigation. Ocwen has also agreed to alter its recordkeeping practices as to whether it has obtained consent to call cell phone numbers, and has agreed to pay certain minimum amounts in future lawsuits that may arise.
