Radio Text Message Settlement
- Class Members can submit a claim form online or by mail
- Settlement exclusion requests must be submitted by the deadline
Most people aren’t fond of receiving unsolicited advertising about something they know little or nothing about. Some are so disenchanted by the advertising that they end up filing a Telephone Consumer Protection Act violation class action lawsuit over it. An amount of $8.5 million has recently been agreed upon to settle the Willis v. iHeartMedia class action lawsuit in which the plaintiffs claim iHeartMedia violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by sending unsolicited text messages to the cellphones of listeners in order to promote its marketing partners’ goods and services. iHeartMedia denies these allegations and maintains that the messages were sent with the consent of the consumers and were authorized by law. At any rate, the parties have decided to come to a compromise to end the law suit. As a result, those who believe themselves to be part of the settlement class will need to submit a claim in order to receive a part of the $8.5 million settlement fund.
