Decision Follows Recent Summary Judgment Ruling

CallFire, Inc., the cloud-based text and voice platform that helps organizations communicate with their target audiences, today announced the company was voluntarily dismissed by plaintiff John Luna from his Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) class action against multiple defendants in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. CallFire was represented in the suit by Michael Hazzard at Arent Fox LLP, a national leader in litigation, regulatory, and transactional counsel, in case number CV 14-00607 HRL.

“As expected, the recent summary judgment win for CallFire that established platforms like ours are not liable under the TCPA because we are common carriers set a precedent that is being felt across the industry,” said Susan Anhalt, Chief Legal Officer. “Once the plaintiff in this case was presented with the recent ruling in our favor on essentially the same claims, he voluntarily dismissed his case against CallFire.”

Earlier this month, CallFire won on summary judgment in a TCPA class action suit filed by Rinky Dink, Inc. against multiple defendants in the United States District Court for the Western District Washington, with the judge in that case finding that CallFire could not be liable under the TCPA because it is a common carrier. As a common carrier, CallFire was found to not be subject to liability under the TCPA or analogous state laws when serving as a conduit for the calls its customers initiate in case number C13-1347-JCC.
