Lee v. Global Tel Link

Case # 15-cv-02495
Case Name Lee v. Global Tel Link
Jurisdiction US District Court for C.D. CA
Summary

Defendant provides collect call services for individuals incarcerated throughout the United States.  As the service requires call recipients to have an account with the company, individuals who received calls with no account then received an automated message with instructions on setting up an account.  Though they received a partial waiver from the FCC for portions of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) related to robocalling, Plaintiffs allege that Global Tel Link robocalls still violated the TCPA and the agreement with the FCC.

Final Approval Date 08/20/2018
Result
  1. Final Approval granted.
  2. All objections were overruled.

  5. Appeals process is ongoing.
