According to the terms of the agreement, class members will share in the settlement fund, with each member possibly receiving a $90 base payment. The balance of the fund would then be divided on a per-call basis to class members who received multiple calls in a 12-month period on a number that had been on the National Do Not Call Registry. Additionally, lead plaintiff Diana Mey will receive a $20,000 incentive award.
Mey filed the complaint in 2013, alleging that she and thousands of others received automated telemarketing calls that involved a list of telephone numbers that Frontier provided to Virido.
The case is Mey v. Frontier Communications Corp., case number 3:13-cv-01191, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut.
