TCPALaw writes: A federal lawsuit over robocalls made by the home security company ADT is resulting in payments to people nationwide who received these calls. ADT has to pay $15 million, which will go to consumers who file a claim form online, with each class member getting $500 (depending on how many people make claims). So if you ever got a robocall pitching a home security system, fill out the claim form at RobocallSettlement.com and get a check. This is a substantially better result for consumers than some other robocall settlements. The case is Desai v. ADT Security Services, Inc., No. 1:11-cv-1925 (N.D. Ill.) and the entire settlement document is here. Of couse, you might do better on your own.
