One of the last thing anyone wants to see after hearing a mobile phone alert is an incoming text message that was sent without prior consent. The overall disdain for such an event is at times so drastic that a class action lawsuit is filed over it. A recent example of a class action being field over allegations such as these can be found in the lawsuit titled Truong v. Peak Campus Management, LLC. The suit claims that the Defendants violated the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by sending out text messages to persons who had not provided consented to receive them. However, there is usually at least 2 sides to every story and this one is no different as the Defendants contest the allegations made in the lawsuit and deny that the TCPA was violated. It appears the answer to who is right and who is wrong will never be discovered (at least not legally anyways) as the case has come to a pending settlement agreement for a whopping $7,000,000. Those who believe they are eligible to receive payment can begin the filing process online at the Peak TCPA Settlement page.
