Settlement! Claim $6 If This Firm Ever Called or Texted You!
If you received a phone call from or text message from Lexington Law Firm, then read this! If it was on or after July 12, 2013, then you may be entitled to compensation. Or, if you talked to a rep and they pulled your credit report, you may also be entitled to compensation.
The name Lexington Law Firm may not ring a bell. But, I remember them because they were advertising heavily a few years back. And, that was during the time the lawsuit covers. Therefore it is very likely that many of our readers would qualify for this payout.
The lawsuit alleges that Lexington sent autodialed calls and text messages to Plaintiffs’ wireless telephone numbers without permission. That violates the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 (“TCPA”). The class action suit seeks actual and statutory damages.
Lexington denies these allegations. And, while Settlement resolves the lawsuits. The Court has not decided who is right.
Why is there a settlement?
First, the Court has not found in favor of either the Plaintiffs or Lexington. Instead, both sides have agreed to a settlement.
Of course, this allows them to avoid the costs and uncertainty of a trial.
Who is included in the Settlement?
The Settlement includes anyone who received an autodialed call or a text message on their cell phone from Lexington. The timeframe is on or after July 12, 2013, through the date of the entry of an order of preliminary approval by the Court.
There are two classes of people who will qualify for this:
Settlement Class No. 1: All persons in the United States : (1) who received a telephone call and/or text message from July 12, 2013 to the date of preliminary approval based on information gathered by one or more of the following third-party lead generators – RTK Media, Inc., Capital Leads, LLC, Fluent, LLC, and Credit Sesame, and (2) the telephone call or text message in (1) resulted in a telephone conversation with a representative of Lexington or a text message that referenced “Lexington Law.”
Settlement Class No. 2: All persons in the United States: (1) who had a telephone conversation with a representative of Lexington, from July 12, 2013 to the date of preliminary approval, wherein the Lexington representative obtained a copy of such person’s credit report, (2) who did not sign up for Lexington’s credit repair services on that phone call, and (3) who did not opt-out of receiving text messages from Lexington.
Persons meeting this definition are referred to collectively as the “Settlement Class” and, individually, as “Settlement Class Members.”
Excluded from the Settlement Class are: (i) the district judge and magistrate judge presiding over this case, the judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, their spouses, and persons within the third degree of relationship to either of them; (2) individuals who are or were during the Class Period agents, directors, employees, officers, or servants of Lexington or of any affiliate or parent of Lexington; (3) Plaintiffs’ counsel and their employees, and (4) all persons who file a timely and proper request to be excluded from the Settlement Class.
What does the Settlement provide?
Lexington has agreed to make payments to the Settlement Class Members, and for all court costs, etc. Each Settlement Class Member who timely files with the Settlement Administrator a valid Claim Form will receive a check for $6.15.
The deadline to file a claim is May 4, 2020.
