Telephone Consumer Protection Act Lawsuit Awards $3.75 Million Settlement

thOn June 24th, a $3.75 million settlement was reached between JPMorgan Chase Bank NA (JPMorgan) and a proposed class accusing the bank of violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The plaintiffs alleged that JPMorgan violated the law by sending autodialed calls to phone numbers that had been reassigned from former customers to new users who had not provided consent. One of the lead plaintiffs claims that she received nearly sixty calls from JPMorgan about accounts that had belonged to the former owner of the phone number. In their motion for approval of the settlement, the plaintiffs note that the Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins meant that “they faced significant hurdles to obtaining classwide relief. Despite these obstacles, [the plaintiffs] negotiated a settlement that compares favorably to similar TCPA class action settlements.”
