Domino's Pizza Settles Tcpa Lawsuit For 9.75 Million
Domino's Pizza Settles TCPA Lawsuit For 9.75 MillionDomino's Pizza will be paying a $9.75 million settlement, resolving a Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) class action lawsuit filed in May, 2010. Between 2006 and 2010, a Domino's franchise sent unwanted SMS spam texts to thousands of cell phone subscribers in Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi.The TCPA class action was filed by Louisiana resident Toni Spillman; her original complaint says the text messages were ads for home delivery of pizzas, and some of the SMS ads also contained promotional coupons. The TCPA prohibits marketers from using automated dialers to call people's cell phones, or to send them SMS texts. Domino's settlement of its TCPA violations will award $15 to people who received pre-recorded calls to their cell phones between May of 2009 and May of 2010. People who were robocalled between 2006 and May 2009 will get vouchers for a large pizza. This settlement was reached in the Middle District of Louisiana Court, in late May, 2013.Domino's is one many companies that have violated the TCPA and been sued; Best Buy, Pizza Hut, Facebook, Simon & Schuster, Yahoo, and Google have all faced TCPA class action lawsuits.The TCPA restricts telephone solicitations, the use of automated telephone equipment, and unsolicited advertisements. Specifically, the TCPA limits the use of automatic dialing systems, prerecorded voice messages, unsolicited text messages, and junk faxes.
