Settlement Information

Inc.  (“Defendant”) or its vendors recorded phone calls without consent between itself and third parties, through means of telephone or other device, in violation of the Invasion Of Privacy Act, California Penal Code. §§ 630, et seq. (“IPA”). Defendant strongly denies any claims of wrongdoing, but has agreed to settle the lawsuit (see Court Documents and FAQs for definition) to avoid the burden and cost of further litigation.
