Issue: Annoying automatic recorded calls to cell phones
Class Action Lawsuit Against Multiple Auto Insurance Companies for Alleged Unsolicited Phone Calls
Consumers have filed a lawsuit against State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company as well as Variable Marketing, LLC.
The suit charges that defendant State Farm, though the use of lead-generator marketing from Variable Marketing, made repetitive and intrusive autodialed or pre-recorded telemarketing calls to the cell phones of consumers, without first obtaining their consent to receive these calls, in violation of the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”). The TCPA prohibits abusive telephone practices by marketers, lenders, and debt collectors, among others, and places strict limit on the use of autodialers or prerecorded voices to call or send texts to cell phones.
“Congress recognized that these types of marketing calls — made to consumers’ cell phones at all hours to solicit business, without any prior business relationship — are particularly unwelcome,” commented plaintiffs’ counsel Jonathan Selbin. “Through the class action mechanism, consumers can band together and compel companies to comply with the law.”
