It seems that one of the largest TCPA class action lawsuit in America is finally coming to an end by way of settlement agreed between both parties. Though neither the court has decided who is right (the plaintiff or the defendant) nor it has finally approved the settlement; the parties have decided to sit across the table and resolve the dispute through an amicable settlement in order to avoid further cost of litigation. The court has only given a preliminary approval about the settlement.
