Alleged violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act have been the subject of many class action lawsuits over the years. While many of these are based on phone calls, every so often alleged violations via facsimile are involved. A recent example of this is the lawsuit Swinter Group, Inc. v. Med-Stop, Inc. d/b/a Med-Stop, et al, which was filed over allegations that the Defendant violated the TCPA by sending unsolicited fax advertisements that did not contain the required opt-out notice. In addition the faxes are alleged to have been sent without prior express invitation, permission, or an established business relationship. It should be pointed out that the Defendant denies wrongdoing or liability of any kind but has agreed to settle the lawsuit to avoid the uncertainties, expenses, and time associated with taking the case deeper into litigation. Those who believe they are eligible for compensation can get a claim started by going to the Swinter Med Stop TCPA page and clicking the File a Claim tab.
