Sprint Agrees Tentative $5.5M Settlement in Automated Phone Calls Class Action

This is a settlement for the Media/Telecom lawsuit.

Seattle, WA: Sprint has agreed a tentative $5.5 million settlement in a class action suit brought by customers who allege they received automated phone calls with pre-recorded messages, in violation of Washington State's Consumer Protection Act.

The suit was filed in 2009 by customers like Sandra Palmer, who claimed she received auto-dial calls for "several weeks" after asking the messages to stop.

If the settlement is approved, customers who are eligible class members could receive between $100 and $500 per call, up to a maximum of $4,400.

The complaint includes people who were Sprint customers between July 23, 2005, and June 13, 2011, in Washington state who received auto-dial solicitations less than one year after asking the operator to stop the calls, and Sprint customers in the United States who received solicitation calls more than 30 days after requesting a stop to the messages.
