Consumers to Receive More than $330 Apiece in TCPA Settlement

U.S. District Judge Fernando M. Olguin in Los Angeles on December 23, 2014, gave his final approval to a class action settlement in which consumers alleged that Carrington Mortgage had violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) by calling its customers’ cell phones for debt collection purposes without their prior express consent.

The plaintiffs were represented by Meyer Wilson attorneys Matthew R. Wilson and Michael J. Boyle, Jr., along with their co-counsel. The settlement requires Carrington to place $1.035 million into a non-reversionary settlement fund, out of which class members may make a claim for a pro rata share. Each class member who made a timely claim will receive approximately $330.00.

This settlement is the latest in a string of TCPA class action settlements Meyer Wilson attorneys have achieved for their clients, in which class members who make claims on a fund receive cash awards.

ABOUT THE TCPA

The TCPA became law in 1991, putting restrictions on automated calls and prerecorded messages (for both debt collection and telemarketing purposes). The TCPA also now regulates automated text messaging. In most circumstances, an entity must have a person’s prior express consent in order to make automated or prerecorded calls or text messages.

Meyer Wilson represents people who have received unsolicited calls or texts and fights for their rights under the TCPA. The TCPA provides for damages of $500 up to $1,500 per violation, so if you have received or are receiving unsolicited robocalls or texts, contact Meyer Wilson today for more information.
