Researching the Claim and Sources

There are several steps to research a claim.  Research can help establish the claim, rebut defenses and improve compensation.

1.  Correct Company Name  

The first step is getting the company name and if possible its location.  Sometimes that is not easy, as many companies know they are violating the Do Not Call law (that’s why they do not stop when well-intended consumers say I’m on the Do Not Call List, they already know that.).

2. Similar Do Not Call Violations

A basic Google search may reveal similar violations.  Additionally Google Scholar and

Solar Telemarketing Settlement

 

cropped-couple-receiving-bad-news-over-the-phone-at-home_bfitinrbi.jpg

 

Some solar companies regularly call people duly registered on the Do Not Call List.  A solar class action was recently settled.

Anybody who received either (1) one or more calls on their cell phones from SolarCity or (2) at least two telemarketing calls from SolarCity during any 12-month period where their phone numbers appeared on the Do Not Call Registry can be a Class Member and is eligible for a settlement.  SolarCity has established a $15 million fund for Class Members. Under the TCPA, you may be able to collect $500 to $1,500 in damages per violation, but the amount that you could receive from the settlement is dependent on how many Class Members submit a claim.

Call for a free consultation to discuss your rights if you received an unwanted call from any  company.    You may be entitled to compensation and help stopping unwanted calls.

Do Not Call List Liability for Agents

  1. Trying to Get Around the Law

As many companies have learned, the Do Not Call List law, can be a potent weapon and several class actions have been filed. A company may want to solicit new customers but avoid legal liability. Some companies now enlist foreign entities to make the cases, and submit that any liability is that of the foreign entity.

2. Liability for Acts of Agents.

Federal Communication Commission (`FCC”) promulgated regulations “generally establish that the party on whose behalf a solicitation is rnade bears ultimate responsibility for any violations.” See Rules and Regulations Implementing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991, Memorandum and Order, 10 FCC Rcd. 12391, 12397 If 13 (1995). 11. The FCC confirmed this principle in 2013, when it explained that “a seller …. may be held vicariously liable under federal common law principles of agency for violations of either section 227(b) or section 227(c) that are committed by third-party telemarketers.” See In the Matter ofthe Joint Petition Filed by Dish Network, LLC, 28 F.C.C. Rcd. 6574, 6574 (2013).
