Chase Settles Robo-call Class Action for $34 million
JPMorgan Chase Bank and its credit card division Chase Bank USA, N.A., have agreed to settle a class action asserting violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act for $34 million. At the time the agreement was reached in principle last summer, it was the largest cash settlement in the history of the TCPA.
Attorneys from the Ankcorn Law Firm took a leading role in prosecuting and negotiating a resolution to these cases. Mark Ankcorn was co-lead counsel in a class action filed in federal court in San Diego and put together a team of attorneys to resolve three other actions filed in other federal courts across the country.
Judge Feinerman in Chicago will hear the preliminary approval motion on Tuesday, August 12, 2014. The case is Gehrich v. JPMorgan Chase Bank, No. 1:12-cv-5510 (N.D.Ill.)
