Pivotal Payments Unwanted Telemarketing Calls Settlement Notes

  • Abante Rooter and Plumbing, Inc. et al. v. Pivotal Payments, Inc. d/b/a Capital Processing Network and CPN
  • Case No. 3:16-cv-05486-JCS
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California

In 2016, plaintiff Abante Rooter & Plumbing filed a class action lawsuit alleging Pivotal Payments violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by using an automatic telephone dialing system to solicit business. Pivotal Payments is a provider of global payment processing solutions for merchants across the United States.

According to court documents, Pivotal Payments made several unwanted telemarketing calls to the plaintiffs business cell phone and allegedly did not obtain prior express consent to place these calls.

In 1991, Congress enacted the TCPA in response to a growing number of consumer complaints regarding certain telemarketing practices. The TCPA makes it unlawful “to make any call (other than a call made for emergency purposes or made with the prior express consent of the called party) using an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice … to any telephone number assigned to a … cellular telephone service.”

Pivotal Payments denies it did anything wrong. Still, the company agreed to settle the case for $9 million to avoid continued litigation. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Pivotal Payments TCPA settlement website.

Class members who wish to object to or exclude themselves from the Pivotal TCPA settlement must do so by June 29, 2018. Class members who wish to participate in the settlement must submit a claim form on or before June 29, 2018.

Dentis USA Fax Advertisement TCPA Settlement Notes

  • Degnen, D.M.D., P.C. d/b/a Sunset Tower Family Dentistry, et al. v. Dentis USA Corporation d/b/a Dentis USA,
  • Case No.1611-CC00848-01
  • Pending in the Missouri Circuit Court for the Eleventh Judicial Circuit, County of St. Charles

In 2016, plaintiff Suzanne Degnen filed a class action lawsuit alleging Dentis USA violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by sending fax advertisements that did not contain the required opt-out notice and without prior express consent of Class members.

While the TCPA was initially enacted to protect consumers from annoying telemarketing calls, it also contains a provision known as the Junk Fax Protection Act. Much like the TCPA, the JFPA prohibits companies like Dentis USA from sending unsolicited fax advertisements to consumers without their prior express consent. Additionally, the law mandates that any fax advertisement must contain a clear and conspicuous opt-out notice on the first page of the ad and give a phone number or contact information so recipients can opt-out of receiving future faxes. These opt-out requests must be honored within a 30-day time period.

Dentis USA denies the allegations and disputes that their fax advertisements were sent without permission and without the required opt-out notice. Still, the company agreed to settle the case to avoid continued litigation. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Dentis USA Fax Advertisement TCPA settlement website.

Class members who wish to object to or exclude themselves from the Dentis USA Fax Advertisement settlement must do so by April 27, 2018. Class members who wish to participate in the settlement must submit a claim form on or before June 1, 2018.

Global Tel*Link TCPA Settlement Notes

  • David Martin v. Global Tel*Link Corporation
  • Case No. 2:15-cv-02495
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California

In December 2014, plaintiff David Martin initiated this class action lawsuit alleging Global Tel*Link violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by using an automatic dialing systems and prerecorded voice to place calls to cell phone numbers without the prior express consent of the recipient.

Global Tel*Link provides collect call services to inmates at jails and prisons throughout the United States. The service requires that the called party establish a billing relationship with Global Tel*Link in order to pay for and receive calls from an inmate. When an inmate attempts to place a collect call to a number for which there is no pre-established billing relationship with Global Tel*Link, the call attempt will trigger a separate prerecorded “Notification Call” that tells the called party that they need to set up an account in order to pay for and receive the call.

Martin contends that the automated nature of these Global Tel*Link notification calls to cell phone numbers is in direct violation of the TCPA.

Global Tel*Link denies all allegations and believes the claims are without merit but agreed to settle for $8.8 million to avoid further litigation. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Global Tel*Link TCPA settlement website.

Class members who wish to object to or exclude themselves from the Global Tel*Link Notification Call TCPA settlement must do so by June 15, 2018. Class members who wish to participate in the settlement must submit a claim form on or before June 15, 2018.

iCan Telemarketing Text Messages Settlement Notes

  • Jacob Horn and Robert Vetter v. iCan Benefit Group, LLC
  • Case No. 9:17-cv-81027-RLR
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida

On September 13, 2017, plaintiff Jason Horn filed this class action lawsuit against iCan for violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, alleging that iCan sent telemarketing text messages to his cell phone without his prior express written consent.

However, prior to the filing of this TCPA class action lawsuit, iCan purchased an insurance policy from Liberty International Underwriters to insure iCan for claims like those asserted in this litigation. Upon receipt of Horn’s complaint, iCan tendered the lawsuit to Liberty, demanding coverage for the TCPA claims. Despite the fact that the policy clearly covered the claims at issue in this case, Liberty refused to honor the policy, including providing iCan with a defense or coverage for the claims. Liberty incorrectly maintained that certain exclusions in the policy should result in denial of coverage for TCPA claims.

iCan has agreed to the entry of a Consent Judgment against it in the amount of $60,413,112.00. iCan has also agreed to assign its rights against its insurer, Liberty International Underwriters. Attorneys for the Class believe that Liberty improperly denied iCan coverage and will attempt to recover on the judgment from Liberty in separate proceedings.

Additionally, iCan has agreed to pay the first $50,000 of settlement administration costs. In the event plaintiffs’ attorneys are successful in recovering from Liberty, a settlement fund will be created and used to pay all additional costs. The remaining net settlement fund shall be distributed as pro rata (equal share) cash payments to Class Members who submit valid claims. The amount of each claimants cash award will depend on the number of valid claims filed and with certain dollar limits for each text message received. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the iCan Telemarketing Text Messages settlement website.

Class members who wish to object to or exclude themselves from the iCan Telemarketing Text Messages settlement must do so by May 14, 2018. Class members who wish to participate in the settlement must submit a claim form on or before June 15, 2018.
