Favorable Ruling in Class Action Lawsuit

July 26, 2012

Scott Shaffer was victorious against a plaintiff trying to start a class action lawsuit against our client arising from a Domino’s pizza franchisee’s misuse of our client’s database to make 40,000 calls advertising pizza specials to its customers. Because the law provides a $500 award for each illegal call, the class action lawsuit exposed our client to up to $20 million dollars in damages. When the class certification motion was denied, the plaintiff was limited to pursuing only her own $500 claim. This is a significant victory in a complex area of telemarketing law.
