On October 18, 2017, U.S. District Judge Marcia G. Cooke granted final approval to the $9.76 million settlement between Ace American Insurance (“Ace”) and a class of plaintiffs who accused the company of violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) by making marketing calls to telephone numbers that were listed on the “Do Not Call” Registry.

The suit was originally filed in Florida federal court on April 1, 2015. The $9.76 million settlement was first announced in January 2017 and Judge Cooke granted preliminary approval in April 2017. When the settlement was announced, Ace publically commented that it was seeking a quick end to the suit. The settlement allows for class members to each receive around $95 in damages. The class itself is made up of U.S. customers of Nationstar Mortgage or BB&T Bank who were listed on the “Do Not Call” Registry but still received more than one marketing call from, or on behalf of, Ace after October 16, 2013.

The Case Is: Boise et al. v. Ace American Insurance Co. et al., Case No.: 1:15-cv-21264, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
