R. Fellen Inc., et al. v. Rehab Care Group, et al.Case No. 1:14-cv-02081District Court for the Eastern District of California
Plaintiff Dakota Medical, Inc., dba Glenoaks Convalescent Hospital (“Plaintiff”) sued RehabCare and Polaris, alleging that they violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 ( “TCPA”), by sending unsolicited facsimile advertisements and facsimile advertisements that do not comply with the TCPA’s opt-out notice requirements. The TCPA permits a person to whom such advertisements are sent to bring legal action against the sender and recover either actual damages or statutory damages of $500 per violation. The TCPA also permits a court to increase the statutory damages up to a maximum of $1,500 per violation if the defendant willfully and/or knowingly violated the TCPA. Defendants deny that they violated the TCPA and will defend the lawsuit if the proposed settlement is not approved. RehabCare denies any involvement in sending the Faxes.
