A $7 million Oasis Energy class action settlement will resolve claims that the energy company placed unsolicited, prerecorded messages in violation of federal law.
The settlement will benefit consumers who received a prerecorded message or ringless voicemail from Oasis Energy or its affiliates Censtar, Electricity Maine, Electricity N.H., Major Energy, Perigee, Provider Power Mass, Respond Power, Spark, and Verde (together, the “Oasis Entities”) between February 12, 2014 and September 25, 2019.
Plaintiff Kenneth Albrecht filed his Oasis Energy class action in February 2018, claiming that the company sent him and other consumers ringless voicemails.
These prerecorded calls allegedly do not ring as normal calls and instead appear in voicemail logs. According to Albrecht’s Oasis Energy class action lawsuit, the energy company did not have consumers’ permission to send these calls.
He argues that the Oasis Entities violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) because they failed to get “prior express written consent” from call recipients.
The TCPA is a federal law that protects consumers from unsolicited telemarketing communications such as robocalls, ringless voicemails, spam text messages, and junk faxes.
The Oasis Entities deny each and every allegation of wrongdoing, liability, and damages but has agreed to pay $7 million to resolve the claims against them.
Exact payments under the Oasis Energy TCPA class action settlement are not determined at this time but each Class Member will receive an equal share of the net settlement fund.
The net settlement fund will depend on the amount of administrative costs, attorneys’ fees, court costs, and service awards deducted from the $7 million starting amount.
In order to benefit from the Oasis Energy class action settlement, Class Members need to file a valid Claim Form by February 20, 2020. The final approval hearing for the settlement is scheduled for February 11, 2020.
