Frontier To Pay $11 Million In Settlement To Recipients Of Illegal Telemarketing Calls
Frontier Communications has agreed to pay $11 million to settle a class action lawsuit brought by recipients of telephone calls they say violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. The calls were placed by automatic telephone dialing systems and to numbers that had been placed on the National Do Not Call Registry.
Each member of the settlement class will receive a $90 base payment, then the balance of the settlement fund will be divided on a per-call basis to class members who received multiple calls, making this one of the largest settlements in a TCPA case.
The settlement was featured in an article on Law 360.
