Florham Park partner Matt Fedor was recently quoted in a Business Insurance article titled, “Ruling maps out class action defense plan.” The article discusses the U.S. Supreme Court’s 6-3 ruling in Campbell-Ewald Co. v. Jose Gomez, which focused on a marketing company’s potential liability under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act for sending an unsolicited text message on behalf of the U.S. Navy.

The article suggests that while the Court technically sided with plaintiffs, a different ruling may have come to fruition if the defendant’s proffered payment had been submitted in an account payable to the plaintiff, with the court then entering judgment for the plaintiff in that amount.

Matt commented on the implications the ruling has for businesses. “Companies should certainly carefully read the decision and, if they’re in a position to, either send a check to the plaintiff or deposit money in the court,” he said.
