Record Settlement for Consumers who Received Unwanted Robocalls from Capital One

September 15th, 2015

Williamson & Williams and co-counsel represented the plaintiff class representatives and settlement class in a robocalls case against Capital One that was finalized in June 2015 in Chicago, Illinois.  The settlement was the largest all-cash class settlement in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act’s history. Under the settlement terms, consumers who receiving automated or prerecorded calls on their cell phones had the right to make claims for their share of the common fund, and Capital One agreed to new business practices that will make it less likely that consumers will receive similar robocalls from Capital One concerning credit card debts in the future.
