The lawsuit alleges that Caribbean Cruise Line made unsolicited robo-dial calls to consumers on their cell phones, in violation of Telephone Consumer Protection Act, (TCPA). According to the plaintiffs, the robo-calls were made under the guise of conducting a political survey. However, in reality, the survey was a ruse to gain the opportunity to sell cruises to consumers. Caribbean Cruise Line submitted a motion to dismiss, containing 3 arguments, each of which the judge rejected.
The TCPA prohibits calls to cell phones placed with an auto-dialer without the consumer’s prior express consent. Penalties for certain TCPA violations begin at $500 per call and can be tripled to $1500 per call.
