Zacks Investment Research TCPA Settlement Notes

  • Kerr, et al. v. Zacks Investment Research, Inc., et al.
  • Case No.16-cv-01352 GPC BLM
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California

In May 2016, plaintiff Kerr filed this class action lawsuit against Zacks Investment Research alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the California Invasion of Privacy Act. Specifically the TCPA class action lawsuit claims that Zacks Investment Research placed calls via an autodialer to consumers’ cell phones without their prior express consent.  These telemarketing calls were for the purpose of promoting a book published by Zacks and for advertising an educational seminar regarding options trading.

It is against the law for companies to call consumers using an automatic telephone dialing system (autodialer or ATDS) or to place calls using an artificial or prerecorded voice if the recipient has not given permission to receive such calls (prior express consent).

Fora Financial Unwanted Robocalls Settlement Notes

  • Dolemba, et al. v. Fora Financial LLC et al.
  • Case No. 16 C 10651
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division

Plaintiff Scott Dolemba filed this class action lawsuit against Fora Financial, claiming the company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by placing autodialed telemarketing calls to consumers cell phones without their consent.

Dolemba alleges he received numerous calls and emails, sometimes twice or more a day, from Fora Financial offering its services. According to Dolemba, the calls were paced using a predictive dialer. Predictive dialers place calls without human intervention until a connection is made. The machine “predicts” when a human is likely to be available to take the call if answered. When Dolemba answered the calls, there was a pause. This is a common feature of a predictive dialer.

However, Dolemba says he never authorized automated placement of calls to his cell phone or provided his number to Fora Financial. This, the class action lawsuit states, is a willful and knowing violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act or TCPA.

Fora Financial denies violating the TCPA but opted to settle the claims to avoid the expense and uncertainty of further litigation. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Fora Financial Unwanted Robocalls Settlement website.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the terms of the Fora Financial Unwanted Robocalls Settlement must do so by March 26, 2018. Class members who wish to participate in the settlement must submit their claim form on or before March 26, 2018.

Normandin’s Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, One Command Telemarketing Robocall Settlement Notes

  • Brinker, et al. v. Normandin’s, et al.
  • Case No. 5:14-cv-03007-EJD-HRL
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California San Jose Division

Plaintiffs Alan Brinker, Austin Rugg, and Ana Sanders filed this class action lawsuit against Normandin’s Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram and One Command alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act or TCPA.

Specifically the plaintiffs claim that the San Jose-based auto dealership, in partnership with automotive marketing and advertising company One Command, placed telemarketing robocalls to their cell phones for the purpose of advertising vehicle routine maintenance services, without their prior permission. These telemarking robocalls reportedly consisted of a prerecorded message stating their vehicle were overdue for service, but never stated for which vehicle.

The TCPA makes it unlawful to make any call, (other than for an emergency purpose or with the prior express consent of the recipient) using an robocall system, also known as an autodialer, to any cell phone number. For calls made on or after October 16, 2013, the law requires written prior express consent for prerecorded telemarketing or advertising phone calls. Prior written express consent means the recipient must agree, in writing, to receive telemarketing robocalls.

The Frequently Asked Questions section on the settlement website further summarizes the terms of the settlement and how Class Members can file a claim. Complete details are provided in the Settlement Agreement. The Settlement Agreement and other related documents are available on the Normandin’s Telemarketing Robocall Settlement website.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the terms of the Normandin’s Telemarketing Robocall Settlement must do so by February 13, 2018. Class members who wish to submit a claim for payment must do so by February 13, 2018.
