A settlement has been reached in this class action lawsuit against Defendants RehabCare Group, Inc. (“RehabCare”), and Cannon & Associates LLC, dba Polaris Group (“Polaris”), about mass broadcasts of faxes between July 17, 2010, and February 4, 2014. The court presiding over the lawsuit has preliminarily approved the settlement and certified the Settlement Class, defined as:
All persons that were subscribers of facsimile telephone numbers to which there was a successful transmission of one or more facsimiles by Defendants (or either of them), between July 17, 2010, and February 4, 2014, in broadcasts by Westfax, Inc. (the “Faxes”).
If you are a class member – a “subscriber” of a fax telephone number to which the Faxes were successfully sent between July 17, 2010, and February 4, 2014 (“Class Period”) – you are entitled to receive a payment from the settlement. The fax telephone numbers to which the Faxes were sent can be viewed on the settlement website. Only subscribers of these fax telephone numbers during the Class Period are eligible to be paid, regardless of who else may have used the same fax telephone number. Before any money is paid, the court will have a hearing to decide whether to give final approval to the settlement.
