Summary

If you received a prerecorded message telemarketing call regarding home security systems, you may be a  member of a class action lawsuit against NorthStar Alarm Services, LLC and Yodel Technologies LLC (“Defendants”). The lawsuit alleges that Defendants violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA") by placing prerecorded telemarketing calls regarding home security systems to residential telephone numbers.  This website concerns the proposed settlement ("Settlement") with Yodel only.  

This website contains information regarding the Settlement of the Class Action case Braver v. Yodel Technologies, LLC, et al. No. 5:17-cv-00383-F (W.D.
