$5M Discover Home Loans Preliminary TCPA Settlement Approved

Santa Clara, CA: Preliminary approval of a $5 million settlement has been granted in Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) class action pending Discover Financial Services and Discover Home Loans Inc. The suit alleged that the defendants made unsolicited telemarketing calls to customers without receiving consent to do so.

If you received telemarketing calls from Discover Home Loans between June 1, 2012 and July 31, 2015, you may be entitled to a cash payment from the TCPA class action settlement.

Discover Financial Services is a direct banking and payment service that runs mortgage refinance business through its subsidiary, Discover Home Loans. According to the lawsuit, Discover used pre-recorded messages sent to consumers in order to increase the number of its home loan customers. The defendant allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system and/or automated or pre-recorded messages to make unauthorized telemarketing phone calls to consumers, in violation of the TCPA.

Eligible class members are those whose contact information was purchased by DHL from a third-party lead generator and used the information to make at least one non-emergency call between June 1, 2012 and July 31, 2015 using an automatic telephone dialing system or artificial pre-recorded voice to promote goods or services, or to make more than one call within a 12-month period to a phone number registered on the National Do Not Call Registry.

Final court approval is required. The case is Davenport v. Discover Financial Services, et al., Case No. 1:15-CV-6052 (N.D. Ill.).
