Krakauer v. DISH Network
District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.
In 2014, a consumer named Thomas Krakauer brought a lawsuit in in North Carolina federal district court against DISH. He claimed that a DISH authorized retailer illegally made telemarketing calls to him while his number was on the national Do Not Call Registry, and that DISH was responsible for those calls. The judge allowed the case to be brought for a group of consumers—called a class action—who also received DISH telemarketing calls.
After a trial in January 2017, a jury found that DISH was liable for calls placed by the retailer to certain telephone numbers on the Do Not Call Registry. The jury, however, did not determine the identity of class members who should receive an award.
