What Is DirecTV and Celsius Class Action Settlement?
Top Class Actions readers received checks in the mail from several settlements resolving claims of illegal telemarketing, false advertising and more.
Readers have reported receiving payments from a $17 million class action lawsuit settlement with DirecTV over alleged unsolicited telemarketing calls.
Celsius consumers have begun to receive payments from a $7.8 million class action lawsuit settlement to resolve claims that Celsius falsely advertised its products as preservative-free.
The name of the case is Jenny Brown, et al. v. DirecTV LLC, Case No. 2:13-cv-01170, in the District Court for the Central District of California. And Hezi, et al. v. Celsius Holdings Inc., Case No. 1:21-CV-9892-VM, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
What Is This Class Action All About?
According to the class action lawsuit, DirecTV violated the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by contacting consumers with unsolicited telemarketing phone calls. These calls allegedly sought payment for debts despite the call recipients never having been DirecTV customers.
DirecTV agreed to resolve the TCPA class action lawsuit with a $17 million settlement. Under the terms of the settlement, consumers could receive a proportional share of the net settlement based on which DirecTV agent called them. Top Class Actions readers report receiving payment as high as $1,693!
Plaintiffs in the class action lawsuit accused Celsuis of falsely advertising its beverages as containing “no preservatives.” In reality, Celsius drinks allegedly contain citric acid – an ingredient that serves as both a preservative and a flavoring agent.
Celsius didn’t admit any wrongdoing but agreed to pay $7.8 million to resolve the false advertising class action lawsuit. Under the terms of the settlement, consumers could receive up to $250 in reimbursement with proof of purchase or up to $20 without proof of purchase. Top Class Actions readers report receiving payments of up to $23.66 from the settlement.
