This is a settlement for the Media/Telecom lawsuit.

San Francisco, CA: A $6 million settlement has been reached in a Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) class action lawsuit filed against Slide Inc, a subsidiary of Google Inc. The lawsuit alleged that Slide sent text messages to consumers regarding the "Disco"messaging service without receiving prior express consent to do so.

Eligible class members include anyone who lives in the US or its territories and who received a text message regarding the Disco messaging service that was sent through the Disco messaging service without prior express consent.

The text messages involved contained the following or similar language: "Disco is a group texting service. Standard SMS rates may apply or chat for FREE w/ our app – http://disco.com/d More info? Text *help To quit? Text *leave."And "tart group texting with Disco! For easier group management, get our FREE app at http://disco.com/d! More info? Text *help"

Filed in 2011, Pimental v. Google Inc., et al., alleges that by sending unsolicited text messages to consumers from the Disco group text messaging service, Slide violated the TCPA.

A Final Fairness Hearing is scheduled for May 14, 2013. To learn more about filing a claim and downloading forms visit discotextsettlement.com .
