Settlement Reached In Spam Text Message Case

A settlement has been reached following allegations that International Academy of Design and Technology, (IADT) sent mass unsolicited text message advertisements to consumers in violation of the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).  According to the lawsuit, a third-party marketing firm allegedly sent out text messages regarding IADT.

A Federal Court granted preliminary approval to the settlement, which establishes a fund of nearly $20 million from which payments of up to $200 may be made to each consumer who received the text message advertisements and who filed an approved claim for payment.

If you have received unsolicited spam text messages in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act from a company located in the United States, you may be entitled to compensation.  Please call my office, The Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman at (877) 449-8898 for a free consultation.
