Monitronics International, Inc. TCPA Litigation, U.S.D.C. N.D. WV, Case No. 1:13-md-02493
This lawsuit alleges that Monitronics, its Authorized Dealers, or an Authorized Dealer's lead generator or sub-dealer made telemarketing calls to cell phones through the use of an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice and to residential phones through the use of an artificial or prerecorded voice, and to telephone numbers that were listed on the National Do-Not-Call Registry. The lawsuit claims violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) for not receiving the recipients permission to receive these calls. Class members are defined as individuals who received these calls on or after May 18, 2007.
The TCPA provides protections for consumers from receiving unwanted auto-dialed calls on their cell phone. The law allows between $500 - $1500 per violating phone call.
