All About the Smith Medical Partners Unwanted Fax Settlement
Smith Medical Partners was accused of sending unsolicited fax messages to consumers advertising their services in a class action lawsuit filed against the company.
Consumers who received the fax messages claimed that they never gave their consent to receive such messages. In fact, it was estimated that around 45,000 unwanted fax messages were sent by the company between September 2013 and January 2019.
The lawsuit contended that the unsolicited fax messages violated the TCPA, “a federal law that makes it illegal to send advertising calls, texts or faxes to consumers without getting their express prior written consent.”
