$11M Settlement Gets Final Approval in Frontier TCPA Class Action Lawsuit

- by

Santa Clara, CA: An $11 million settlement of a nationwide Telephone Consumer protection Act (TCPA) class action lawsuit against Frontier Communications has received final court approval. The complaint alleged that Frontier commissioned thousands of automated telemarketing calls which were made through a company called Virido in violation of the TCPA.

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.
