A recording class action settlement has been solved as the defendants have agreed to pay $2.3 million to the affected customers. S’well Bottle who was doing business previously as Can’t Live Without It LLC will resolve all the claims, which says that the company has illegally recorded the calls with their toll-free numbers.
Not just they recorded their calls, but this recording was done without the consent of their customers.
The class members who are eligible for the claims include the residents from California who made a call to the S’well’s toll-free number. However, the calls must be placed between March 16, 2017, and Feb 13, 2018, and did not receive the warning that their call was recorded.
With this, the class action also claimed that recording calls without the client’s permission are the violation of California Call Recording Laws. According to this law, the business has to disclose if they are recording calls in any kind. Now, the S’well Bottle Class Action Settlement states that the members will be eligible for up to $5,000 in compensation, while the actual amount will depend on the number of Class Members who will be participating.
According to the settlement notice, if all the class members submit the valid claims, each class member will receive an amount of $641.38. The class members have until Feb’16, 2019 to submit a valid claim.
The S’well Bottle settlement has also agreed to pay the administrative costs, court fee, attorney fee, and the costs of lead plaintiff for his services. The plaintiff has filed this settlement in September’2018 by looking for the damages under the California Invasion of Privacy Act.
S’well is settling the suit but does not admit any wrongdoing.
