AllianceOne Class Action Settlement Announced


This is a settlement for the lawsuit.

San Diego, CA: An agreement to resolve a consumer fraud class action pending against AllianceOne has been made in federal court in California. The court recently gave preliminary approval to the settlement. The lawsuit alleges that the company violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by calling cell phones using an automated dialer or with a prerecorded voice message without the recipients' prior express consent.

Under the terms of the settlement, AllianceOne denies any liability, but to terminate the exposure, will participate in funding a $9 million settlement fund to fully resolve the matter.

The agreement is subject to final court approval. The recovery, less attorneys' fees and expenses to be paid to Class Counsel, will be distributed to class members who received an autodialed call from the company or their affiliates and agents on a cell phone without their prior consent between February 8, 2004 and November 30, 2010, under procedures to be implemented by the court overseeing the settlement. After paying administrative expenses, attorneys' fees and costs, a donation to a charitable organization, and awards to class members, the remaining amount in the settlement fund, if any, will be returned to AllianceOne.
