If you received a prerecorded DIRECTV debt collection call after August 14, 2009, and you were not a DIRECTV customer, a class action lawsuit may affect your rights.
This is a court authorized notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
June 24, 2022 — Exclusion Deadline
- There is a class action against DIRECTV, LLC (“DIRECTV”), concerning prerecorded “robocalls” made by or on behalf of DIRECTV, to non-customers’ cell phones. You may receive a notice because you may be a class member
- The Plaintiff claims that DIRECTV and debt collectors that were acting on DIRECTV’s behalf made debt collection calls using prerecorded messages to the cellular telephones of individuals who were not DIRECTV customers, in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”). DIRECTV denies the allegations in this lawsuit and denies that it did anything wrong.
- You are a “class member” if you received prerecorded debt collection calls on your cellular telephone from or on behalf of DIRECTV at any time after August 14, 2009, and you were not a DIRECTV customer. You may receive an email or postcard notice because records show that you may have received such a call.
- On December 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022, the Court entered Orders that may affect your rights. You can find the Court's Orders on Summary Judgment here.
- The Court has not decided whether DIRECTV did anything wrong. There has been no settlement of this case, there is no money available now, and there is no guarantee there will be. However, if you are a class member, your legal rights are affected, and you have a choice to make now:
|YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS LAWSUIT:|
|Stay in this lawsuit. Await the outcome. Give up certain rights.
If you are a class member, by doing nothing, you keep the possibility of getting money and other benefits that may come from a trial or a settlement. If you do nothing, however, you give up any right to sue DIRECTV yourself separately about those calls.
ASK TO BE EXCLUDED
|Get out of this lawsuit. Get no benefits from it. Keep rights.
If you ask to be excluded and money or benefits are later awarded, you will not share in them. But if you request to be excluded, you keep the right to sue DIRECTV separately about the calls at issue in this case that it may have made to you.
- Your options are explained in more detail in the Long Form Notice.
- If you received notice in 2021, the deadline to ask to be excluded was July 18, 2021. If you received notice in May 2022, to ask to be excluded you must act before June 24, 2022.
- The Plaintiff must prove her and the class members’ claims against DIRECTV. If money or other benefits are obtained from DIRECTV, you will be notified about how to receive a share.
