$3M Jenny Craig TCPA Settlement Deal Approved
Jenny Craig TCPA Settlement
In the case of Bloom v. Jenny Craig, the Southern District of Florida has approved a $3M class settlement which found the nutrition and weight loss company in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Jenny Craig was accused of violating the TCPA by sending marketing-related texts via TextMagic text messaging service. The class, comprised of 628,610 individuals, will receive $840,000, or around $4.75 each, with $4,5000 going to the plaintiff.
The Jenny Craig TCPA settlement, which “contested issues related to whether the software and equipment used to send the messages constituted an [Automatic Telephone Dialing System (ATDS)] in a setting of developing case law and FCC rulings,” saw some uncertainty as the definition of ATDS has recently been contended by the FCC.
