$19.5M Buccaneers Junk Fax Settlement Preliminarily Approved

This is a settlement for the Nuisance caller lawsuits allege consumers are being harassed by companies lawsuit.


Santa Clara, CA: A $19.5 million settlement has received preliminary approval potentially ending a Telephone Consumer protection Act (TCPA) class action brought against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The suit claims the Buccaneers, a member of the National Football League, violated the TCPA when it sent Technology Training Associates and Back to Basics Family Chiropractic unsolicited advertisements by facsimile regarding tickets to team games in 2009 and 2010.

The 2016 complaint sought to represent all persons who were sent the same or similar ads by fax, for group or individual game tickets in 2009 and 2010, in which the ads didn’t display opt-out information, in violation of the TCPA.

According to court documents, more than 343,000 faxes were allegedly sent to over 131,000 unique fax numbers.

The proposed settlement provides for payments of up to $350 for the first fax received and up to an additional $565 total for subsequent faxes to class members who file claims.

The case is Technology Training Associates Inc. et al. v. Buccaneers Limited Partnership, case number 8:16-cv-01622, in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
