Supreme Court Sides with Consumer on TCPA Case Campbell-Ewald v Gomez in 6-3 Decision

In the TCPA case of Campbell-Ewald Co. v Gomez, the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled in favor of the consumer.

We had reported on this case back in November of 2015, where Daniel Blynn of Venable, LLC, laid out the facts of the case:

The plaintiff sued Campbell-Ewald, a U.S. Navy contractor hired to provide “multimedia recruiting campaign” services, under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) after he received an unsolicited text message from Campbell-Ewald in 2006. Campbell-Ewald admitted fault and, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 68, offered a full settlement of $1,503 to the plaintiff, slightly more than three times the maximum award allowed under the TCPA. But, there is a wrinkle – the plaintiff refused the offer of judgment. That brings us to the Supreme Court, which is considering the following question: “Does a case become moot when a plaintiff receives an offer of complete relief for his claim?”
