Mortgage Lender Robocall and DNC Settlement Approval

January 25th, 2016

In early January, 2016, a United States District Court Judge for the District of Oregon gave final approval to a sizeable class action settlement against a mortgage lender in a class action case in which Williamson & Williams and co-counsel represented the plaintiff class representatives and the settlement class.  Under the terms of the settlement, eligible consumers who received automated calls to their cellular telephones and/or calls to their telephone numbers registered on the National Do-Not-Call Registry from the mortgage lender will receive cash awards from a settlement fund.  In addition, the settlement provides that the mortgage lender will implement a program to ensure that, in the future, its personnel will comply with the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
