Sirius XM Radio has offered to pay nearly $9.5 million to settle a class action lawsuit over allegations it violated telephone privacy and recording laws by failing to provide notice to customers who spoke with service representatives that their telephone calls were being monitored or recorded. If you placed a call or received a call from Sirius Satellite Radio between 2006 and 2010, you may be able to claim up to $1,000 or even $5,000 from the proposed class action settlement.
