A federal court preliminarily approved a $3.35 million agreement settling robocall claims by more than 1 million potential class members against a collection agency ( Reid v. I.C. Sys., Inc. , D. Ariz., No. CV-12-02661-PHX-ROS, settlement preliminary approval 3/24/17 ).
Judge Roslyn O. Silver of the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona March 24 said the agreement met the threshold requirements for a class settlement. The court approved the settlement on the third try by an Arizona man to settle the case against Minnesota-based collection company, I.C. System Inc.
According to plaintiff Michael Reid, the company allegedly used an automatic telephone dialing system to “repeatedly” call him on his mobile phone. Reid previously asked the court to approve a settlement agreement, but the court found that the recovery per class member was too small and the proposed class definition, overly inclusive.
Finding that the third proposed agreement was satisfactory, the court appointed Kazerouni Law Group, Hyde & Swigart and Lemberg Law LLC as class counsel. Gordon & Rees LLP and Bassford Remele PA represented I.C. System.
