Caffarelli & Associates Ltd. Obtains $10.2 Million Settlement in TCPA Case
JP Morgan Chase Bank NA agreed to pay $10.2 Million to end a class action lawsuit brought by Caffarelli & Associates Ltd. attorneys Alejandro Caffarelli and Lorrie Peeters on behalf of client Sheila Allen, which accused its automotive loan department of violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) by making unauthorized robocalls to over 2 million customers’ cellular phones. Although Ms. Allen was not a Chase customer and never provided the bank with her number, the robocalls she received would instruct her to call back to discuss her “account.” Ms. Allen called Chase numerous times asking for the calls to stop, to no avail. Only after failing in her personal efforts to get the calls to stop did she reach out to Mr. Caffarelli to request assistance. Caffarelli filed the lawsuit in November 2013, and in 2014, Keith Keogh of Keogh Law Ltd. joined as co-counsel. During 2015, Caffarelli and Keogh shepherded the case through to settlement, with distribution to class members taking place in approximately March of 2016. This settlement brings needed relief to Chase customers and others across the United States who had been receiving unwanted, nuisance robocalls.
