ADT Reaches Preliminary $15M Settlement in Robocalls Class Action Lawsuit

This is a settlement for the Media/Telecom lawsuit.

New York, NY: A preliminary settlement has been reached in the class action lawsuit pending against ADS Security alleging the company engaged in telemarketing calls to consumers in violation of the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

Entitled Vishva Desai v. ADT Security Services Inc., the lawsuit claims that certain ADT authorized dealers or lead generators, seeking to sell ADT' products and services, made numerous calls to consumers via automated dialing technology (robocalling) leaving pre-recorded messages.

The settlement would resolve a lawsuit brought on behalf of individuals who received telemarketing phone calls that either (1) delivered a pre-recorded message or (2) were made to a cell phone using automated dialing equipment (commonly referred to as "robocalls"), which allegedly were made by Persons or entities seeking to sell products and services of ADT Security Services, Inc. (now known as The ADT Corporation or ADT, LLC, collectively "ADT"or "ADT Security Services, Inc."). If you received one of these phone calls since January 1, 2007, you may be eligible to participate in the settlement.

If the settlement is approved a settlement fund of $15 million would be established by ADT to be divided among eligible class members. The amount to be paid per plaintiff would be determined by the number of eligible class members. It is estimated based on typical response rates that each claimant is likely to receive between $50.00 and $100.00, but the amount could be higher or lower based on the actual number of valid claim forms. However, in no event will you be entitled to receive more than the statutory maximum of $500.00. A final fairness hearing is scheduled for June 10, 2013.

The Court did not decide in favor of the Plaintiffs or the Defendant. Instead, both sides have agreed to a settlement. To download claim forms and find further information on this class action lawsuit, visit .

Every morning for over two months, now, I get a robo-call from ADT. Every morning it wakes me up. I have trouble sleeping and need my sleep.
Calling the number back to get them to stop has eaten up lots of my time. After asking them to stop calling, repeatedly, I get a call from their robot.
Does a New York lawsuit help me in any way?
