Elias Class Action Settlement

  • Claim ID and Pin Code are needed to file online
  • Claim forms can be mailed as filing alternative
  • Claims Administrator can be contacted for help

It’s not too difficult to imagine that a person may become a bit upset after learning a telephone call they participated in was recorded without consent.  When a large group of people believe that a company was responsible for initiating the recording of such calls, the potential for a class action lawsuit looms large. The class action lawsuit titled James Elias and James Kozik v. Synchrony Bank has recently come to settlement terms resolving allegations that the Defendant violated California laws prohibiting the recording of calls without notice to or consent of all parties to the conversation.  It shouldn’t go without noting that the Defendant denies the allegations brought forth in the suit along with any wrongdoing whatsoever.  It appears the merits of either sides’ arguments will never be heard in court as both parties have agreed to settle the case in order to avoid the risks and costs associated with further litigation.  Class Members who need to get started with a claim can do so online by going to the Elias Class Action Settlement page and clicking the File Claim link.
