Frontier Communications of America is staring down a proposed class action lawsuit filed over alleged violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The suit was filed in California’s Central District and alleges the defendants illegally called consumers without their prior consent.
The complaint accuses the defendant of both willfully and negligently violating the TCPA with their use of automatic telephone dialing systems and pre-recorded or automated messages. The defendant also allegedly called people on the National Do-Not-Call Registry without their prior consent and continued to place calls after being explicitly asked to stop.
The suit looks to establish multiple classes based on whether recipients of the calls were on the National Do-Not-Call registry and whether they explicitly requested an end to the calls. Anyone in the U.S. who received a call from the defendants since 2015 may be eligible. The suit seeks up to $1,500 per call received.
