St. Louis judge asked to approve $1.6 million ‘junk fax’ class action settlement


A dental practice that led a class action lawsuit after receiving a slew of junk and spam faxes from a dental supplier has filed to settle the lawsuit for $1.6 million.

Claimants without a business relationship to the dental supplier and who did not approve of receiving the faxes will receive $180 per fax, far lower than the TCPA fine of $1,500 per fax.

More from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch with $1.6 million settlement proposed in ‘junk’ fax suit in St. Louis federal court by Robert Patrick.
