Snyder, et al., v. Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, No. 1:14-cv-08461 (N.D. Ill.)
Welcome to the Settlement Website for the Ocwen TCPA Settlement
If you received one or more calls on a cell phone from an automatic telephone dialing system made without your consent from, or on behalf of, Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC between October 27, 2010 and October 6, 2017, you may be entitled to benefits under a class action settlement.
Three consumers (“Class Representatives”) brought a lawsuit alleging that Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC (“Ocwen” or “Defendant”) violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), 47 U.S.C. § 227, by using an automatic telephone dialing system to call cell phones (“Automatic Calls”) without proper consent.
A settlement has been reached in this case, which affects certain individuals who received an Automatic Call from Ocwen between October 27, 2010 and October 6, 2017 (“Settlement Class Period”).
The Settlement, if approved, will provide a $17,500,000 fund from which eligible persons who file valid and timely claims will receive cash awards (“Settlement Fund”). The cash awards are estimated to be $60 based on a 10 percent claim rate.
You are in the “Settlement Class” if you were called on one or more of 1,685,757 specific cell phone numbers to which Ocwen made Automatic Calls during the Settlement Class Period.
In addition to paying Settlement awards to Settlement Class Members, the Settlement Fund will be used to pay Attorneys’ Fees and Expenses to attorneys representing the Class Representatives and the Settlement Class (“Class Counsel”), any service awards to each of the three Class Representatives, the reasonable Notice and Administrative Costs of the Settlement, and a possible charitable contribution if there are uncashed Settlement award checks.
Ocwen has also agreed to alter its recordkeeping practices as to whether it has obtained consent to call cell phone numbers, and has agreed to pay certain minimum amounts in future lawsuits that may arise.
