- Town & Country Jewelers LLC v. Meadowbrook Insurance Group Inc
- Case number 3:15-cv-02519-PGS-LHG
Town & Country Jewelers LLC v. Meadowbrook Insurance Group Inc. concerns allegations brought by the plaintiff that the defendant had faxed over advertisements without permission, and also argues that the act is a direct violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. The act places several prohibitions on telemarketing calls, one of which explicitly states that “unless the recipient has given prior express consent,” unsolicited advertising faxes are prohibited. TCPA also bans the use of automated equipment to send advertisements via fax, phone, or SMS text message. Although the defendant continues to deny the allegations, the settlement does not require Meadowbrook to admit fault, and the court has made no decision as to liability.
The $1.5 million settlement fund will be divided among class members and will be distributed on a pro rata basis. Potential earnings range from $300 to $1500.
