Mammoth Mountain Ski Area TCPA Settlement Notes
- Paul Story v. Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, LLC
- Case No. 2:14-cv-02422-JAM-DB
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California
In October 15, 2014, plaintiff Paul Story initiated this class action lawsuit alleging Mammoth Mountain Ski Area violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by placing unsolicited autodialed and prerecorded voice calls to individual’s phones without their prior consent. Story says he received at least two of these unsolicited telemarketing calls from Mammoth Mountain Ski Area advertising season passes at the ski resort to his cell phone.
According to the settlement website (www.MammothTCPASettlement.com), Congress enacted the TCPA in order to protect and balance individual’s privacy rights against legitimate telemarketing practices. Specifically, the law prohibits automated calls or messages to consumers’ cell phones without their “express consent or permission.”
Business that fail to comply with TCPA law can face fines up to $1,500 per call if they are found in willful violation of the TCPA.
Mammoth Mountain Ski Area LLC denies any wrongdoing or liability but has agreed to settle the allegations to avoid the cost and risk of a trial.
Under the terms of the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area TCPA Settlement, the ski resort will pay $3.75 million to resolve all claims in the class action lawsuit. After deductions for settlement administration expenses, class-representative service payment, attorneys’ fees, and court costs, the remaining settlement funds (estimated at $2,657,500.00) will be divided among eligible class members who submit timely and valid claims, not to exceed $500 per claim.
