New York, NY: A $4.5 million settlement has been finalized ending a class action lawsuit against Best Buy Co., Inc, alleging the company violated the Telephone Consumer protection Act, (TCPA) by making unsolicited telephone calls.

Specifically, the lawsuit, entitled Chesbro v. Best Buy Co., Inc., case number 2:10-cv-00774, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, claimed that Best Buy placed automated telephone calls to customers regarding its customer rewards program, a violation of the TCPA, Washington Automatic Dialing and Announcing Act.

In a case filed in April 2010, lead plaintiff Michael Chesbro claimed Best Buy automatically signed customers up for its Rewards Zone program without their knowledge when they purchased electronics under a payment plan. The company then called them with information about that program.

In his motion for final approval, Chesbro requested the settlement funds go towards 439,000 state class members, in addition to the 42,000 members of the national class. All expenses and fees will be deducted from the settlement fund, leaving about $3.2 million to be distributed among the class members.
