Time Warner Cable Slapped by Judge in Hard to Believe TCPA Case

On Tuesday, July 7, 2015 a federal judge in Manhattan (United State District Court, Southern District of New York) entered an order for judgment against Time Warner Cable (TWC) for willful violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The judgment was for $229,500. The order was entered after both parties moved for Summary Judgment.

Editor’s Note: Summary Judgment is also often referred to as “Judgment as a Matter of Law.” It is a judgment entered by a court for one party and against another party summarily, i.e., without a full trial. Summary judgment is awarded if the undisputed facts and the law make it clear that it would be impossible for the opposing party to prevail if the matter were to proceed to trial.

Araceli King of Irving, TX brought the action alleging that TWC placed 163 automated or prerecorded calls to her cellular phone without her consent.
