This website contains information regarding a proposed class action settlement that has been preliminarily approved by the Court in Slovin, et al. v. Sunrun, Inc. et al., U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California No. 4:15-cv-05340-YGR.
NATURE OF THE SETTLEMENT
A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit called Slovin, et al. v. Sunrun, Inc. et al. The lawsuit alleges that telemarketing calls made by or on behalf of Sunrun Inc. ("Sunrun") and Clean Energy Experts, LLC ("Clean Energy Experts") violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 ("TCPA"). Sunrun/Clean Energy Experts maintain that they did not make any unauthorized calls, the lawsuit is without merit, and they were prepared to vigorously defend all aspects of it.
If the Court approves the Settlement, you may be eligible to receive a single payment for each telephone number on which you received call(s). Your payment amount will depend on how many Settlement Class Members submit valid Claim Forms. The Settlement Fund will be divided and distributed equally—sometimes referred to as "pro rata"—to all Settlement Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form after attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses, any award for the Representative Plaintiffs, and notice and administration costs have been deducted.
THE SETTLEMENT CLASS
The Court decided that this Settlement includes a Class of all persons in the United States who, from November 20, 2011 to August 31, 2018, received from or on behalf of Sunrun and/or Clean Energy Experts, or from a third party generating leads for Sunrun and/or Clean Energy Experts: (1) one or more calls on their cellphones, or (2) at least two telemarketing calls during any 12-month period where their phone numbers appeared on a National or State Do Not Call Registry or Sunrun’s and/or Clean Energy Experts’ Internal Do Not Call List more than 30 days before the calls.
The following are excluded from the Settlement Class: (1) any trial judge and other judicial officers that may preside over this case; (2) the Mediators; (3) Sunrun/Clean Energy Experts, as well as any parent, subsidiary, affiliate or control person of Sunrun/Clean Energy Experts, and the officers, directors, agents, servants or employees of Sunrun/Clean Energy Experts; (4) any of the Released Parties; (5) any Settlement Class Member who has timely submitted a Request for Exclusion by the Opt-Out Deadline; (6) any person or entity who has previously given a valid release of the claims asserted in the Action; (7) Plaintiffs’ Counsel; and (8) persons for whom Clean Energy Experts or Sunrun has a record demonstrating "prior express written consent," as defined by the TCPA.
Everyone who fits this description, who is not excluded as per the above, is a member of the Settlement Class.
If you received a postcard about this class action, your phone number may be one of the numbers that was called.
