Peak Campus Text Spam Settlement Notes

  • Truong v. Peak Campus Management LLC, et al.
  • Case No. 2016-CH-9735
  • Pending in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, County Department, Chancery Division

Plaintiff William Truong filed the class action lawsuit in July 2016 against Peak Campus Management alleging the college apartment manager sent illegal text spam to him and thousands of others like him.

Truong claims that he initially received a text message from Peak Campus in October 2014 in which he was offered $200 to renew a lease at a PC property near the University of Illinois- Chicago. Truong contends he continued to receive Peak Campus text spam messages for weeks after and that the text advertisements violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act or TCPA because they “were sent en masse through the use of a short code without the prior express written consent” of the recipient.

Peak Campus denies it violated the TCPA or any similar laws but agreed to settle the class action lawsuit to avoid costs associated with ongoing litigation.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or opt-out of the settlement must do so by Jan. 4, 2018. Class members who wish to submit a claim must do so by Jan. 4, 2018.
