N.C. federal judge triples damages in Dish Network telemarketing lawsuit

CHARLESTON – A federal judge in North Carolina has tripled the damages to $61.34 million in a lawsuit against Dish Network alleging Telephone Consumer Protection Act violations.

District Judge Catherine C. Eagles held that Dish willfully violated the TCPA by ignoring Satellite Systems Network’s history of TCPA violations and neglecting to monitor or enforce its compliance with the law even after receiving complaints.
