Bank of the West TCPA Settlement
- A class action lawsuit alleges that Bank of the West used an automated phone system to illegally place calls.
- If you received an automated call from Bank of the West between November 2, 2008 and July 22, 2014, on your cellular line, you may be eligible for compensation.
- Bank of the West denies any wrongdoing, but has agreed to an out of court settlement to avoid the financial and time burden of taking this case to trial.
In a class action lawsuit filing, it was alleged that Bank of the West placed telephone calls with an automated system to cell phone holding customers who did not consent to these calls. If these allegations are true, it would mean that the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act was violated, and that Bank of the West must pay compensation to the people that were called.
The law firms of Lieff Cabraser Heimann and Bernstein, LLP along with Meyer Wilson Co., LPA have been appointed to represent the plaintiffs in this case. As a part of the class action suit, you do not have to pay anything to these law firms. Their compensation comes out of the total settlement funds if they are approved
- As a part of this settlement, customers may also ask that they receive no further communications from Bank of the West. You must send in a specific request to stop these calls.
- The payment per individual in this case is estimated to be in the range of $25 to $50.
- If you do not file a claim in this case by the deadline, it will be determined that you consented to receiving the calls, and you will waive any further entitlement to sue.
