Tousley Brain Stephens Negotiates Settlement Requiring Defendant Pay $50,000 into LAW Fund

TBS attorneys recently negotiated a class action settlement that required the defendant to pay $50,000 to the Legal Aid for Washington Campaign for Equal Justice, or LAW Fund. The LAW Funds helps Washington residents who are newly poor and are facing homelessness due to foreclosures, evictions, and bankruptcy, in addition to protecting women and children from abuse, and helping returning Iraqi War veterans receive their earned benefits.

The United States District Court for the Western District of Washington incorporated the required payment of cy-près funds into its final judgment entered January 14, 2009, in a class action lawsuit litigated against EchoStar Communications Corporation. TBS attorneys represented Washington residents who received solicitations for Echostar’s “DISH Network” products or services via an automatic dialing and announcing device in violation of Washington law.

“In these difficult economic times, we at Tousley Brain Stephens believe it is particularly important to give back to our community and help support our fellow Washingtonians who are facing serious financial issues and who cannot afford a lawyer to protect their rights,” said TBS member Kim Stephens, lead counsel for the class.

TBS Attorneys encourage others to support the LAW Fund. To learn more about the LAW Fund and the Campaign for Equal Justice, click here.
