May 2019 / www.SecurityInfoWatch.com / Security Business 57 Continued from page 34 Legal Brief: Monitronics Class Action well have viable defenses and it should be afforded the opportunity to defend itself at trial. Class actions are tricky and so is the TCPA. Individual plaintiffs can opt out of the class and cause problems for big companies, as it has with Monitronics. Additionally, hiring other companies to conduct marketing for your company is a double-edged sword – you may benefit from the flow of new customers, but you also may bear liability for the conduct of those companies, particularly if you are on notice of improper conduct and do nothing to address it. Hiring skilled and responsible counsel at an early stage of any meaningful consumer complaint – particularly where the TCPA can be invoked – is a critical step and ultimately could result in a substantial savings to any company at risk of litigation in this area. ■ » Timothy J.
