Altisource TCPA Settlement Notes
- Beecroft v. Altisource Business Solutions Pvt. Ltd.
- Case No. 0:15-cv-02184-SRN-BRT
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota
In April 2015, plaintiff Tracee Beecroft filed this class action lawsuit against Altisource alleging the company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by making improper automated calls to consumers’ cell phones for purposes of promoting its “Cash for Relocation” program.
Specifically, Beecroft says that these unwanted telemarketing calls were made by an automated telephone dialing system or ATDS without her prior express consent. Under TCPA law, companies are prohibited from calling consumers’ cell phone number using an autodialer system or an artificial, prerecorded voice, unless the recipient has given prior express consent.
After two years of hard-fought litigation, the parties came to a settlement. Altisource denies violating the TCPA but opted to settle the claims to avoid the expense and uncertainty of further litigation. The settlement will provide a $1.8 million non-revisionary fund which will be used to pay direct cash awards to Settlement Class members who submit approved claims, notice and administration costs (estimated at $85,000), attorneys’ fees and costs (anticipated to be one-third of the settlement fund), and a service award to Beecroft. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Altisource TCPA Settlement website.
