The lawsuit alleges that telemarketing calls made by US Coachways violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 (the “TCPA”). US Coachways denies that it violated any laws or that it did anything wrong, and has agreed to the settlement solely to avoid the burden, expense, risk and uncertainty of continuing the lawsuit. The Court has preliminarily certified this matter as a class action for settlement. The Settlement Class includes:
All persons within the United States who received one or more text message advertisements on behalf of US Coachways, Inc. at any time in the four years prior to the filing of the Complaint continuing through the date of this Settlement Agreement.
