Dish Network Settles Telemarketing Violations for $210M

Dish Network will pay a $210 million settlement to the federal government and four states for telemarketing violations.

The U.S. Department of Justice announced the settlement. Dish will pay $126 million in civil penalties to the United States for placing millions of telemarketing calls in violation of the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Telemarketing Sales Rule (TSR).

This settlement represents the largest civil penalty ever paid to resolve telemarketing violations under the FTC act. Furthermore, it exceeds the total penalties paid to the government by all prior violators of the TSR.

In addition, Dish will pay a combined $84 million to four states for violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
