Krakauer v. Dish Network. L.L.C.
Bailey Glasser obtained a $20.5 million verdict in a class action trial against Dish Network. The class, led by class representative Dr. Thomas Krakauer of Bahama, North Carolina, alleged Dish was liable for more than 51,000 telemarketing calls placed by a defunct DISH dealer to persons whose telephone numbers were on the National Do Not Call Registry. The jury found DISH liable for all calls, and awarded $400 per violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The court then increased the jury award up to $61.34 million because we proved willfulness.
