Meyer Wilson Wins Nationwide Class Certification for Consumers Called by DirecTV

On July 12, 2017, the federal court for the Northern District of Georgia in Atlanta certified two classes of consumers who received allegedly illegal telemarketing calls selling DIRECTV services. Meyer Wilson and its co-counsel were designated as Class Counsel by the Court. District Judge Mark H. Cohen ruled that two different groups of customers from across the country who received calls on behalf of DIRECTV from DIRECTV’s telemarketing partner Telecel Marketing Solutions will be grouped together and treated as a class. The first group consists of consumers who got telemarketing calls despite the fact that they had placed their telephone numbers on the federal Do Not Call registry. The second group consists of consumers who got calls because Telecel and DIRECTV failed to maintain an internal Do Not Call list, which is required by Federal law so that consumers have a way to stop the unending avalanche of annoying and intrusive telemarketing calls.

In its order, the Court noted the similarities between this case and a recent case against DIRECTV’s competitor DISH Network that resulted in an enhanced trial verdict against DISH of more than $60 million.

A trial to determine DIRECTV’s liability will be held at a later date, but the Court’s order is an important step forward in the effort to hold businesses responsible for their illegal and irresponsible telemarketing practices. Meyer Wilson has been at the forefront of this effort, having secured many of the largest settlements for claims under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which regulates telemarketing calls in the US.

The case is Cordoba v. DirecTV, LLC, Case No. 1:15-cv-3755 (N.D.Ga.).
