WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE FOR THE
CONNOR v. JPMORGAN CHASE, CASE.
Case No. 10 CV 1284 DMS BGS
JUNE 2, 2014 NOTICE TO CLASS MEMBERS
On May 30, 2014 the Court entered an Order granting Preliminary Approval of the Second Phase of the Settlement. See the "Case Documents" link for the May 30, 2014 Preliminary Approval Order. The previously identified Class Members received a Notice of the Settlement as required by the prior Preliminary Approval Order entered March 12, 2012. The May 30, 2014 Preliminary Approval Order now requires Notice to those Class Members that have been identified only after Notice was provided pursuant to the March 12, 2012 Order.
A Final Approval Hearing is now scheduled for November 14, 2014. After the Court grants Final Approval of the proposed Settlement, and that Order becomes final, payments for approved claims for both groups of Class Members receiving notice of the Settlement will be disbursed.
NOTICE TO CLASS MEMBERS
The Parties in this class action litigation entered into a proposed settlement in
January 2012 and obtained preliminary approval of the settlement on March 12, 2012.
The notice sent to the Class anticipated a final approval hearing date of August
3, 2012 but after notice of the settlement was mailed, Chase determined that some
borrowers who fit the class definition had been omitted inadvertently from the class
list. The parties are working together on an updated and corrected class list, and
once that is done, the Court will re-schedule the hearing to decide whether to grant
final approval of the settlement. The new hearing date will be posted on this website.
The settlement is not yet final. It will not be final and effective until the Court
overseeing this litigation enters an order approving it and, if appealed, an appellate
court affirms the approval.
TO: All present or former borrowers or co-borrowers whose residential mortgage loan(s)
or home equity line(s) of credit is or was serviced or subserviced by JPMorgan Chase
Bank, N.A. or Chase Home Finance LLC between June 16, 2006 to June 15, 2011, as
well as former EMC Mortgage customers whose loans were or are serviced by JPMCB
or Chase Home Finance LLC between June 16, 2006 to July 7, 2011, and who may have
been contacted on their cellular telephone(s) by Chase through the use of an automated
dialer system regarding their loan(s).
The Plaintiff in Connor, et. al., v. JPMorgan Chase, et. al. alleges Chase violated
the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), by calling persons with home mortgages
or home equity lines of credit serviced by Chase on their cell phone numbers with
an autodialer without prior express consent. The Court did not decide in favor of
Plaintiffs or Chase, and Chase denies any such violation. However, to settle the
case, Chase will provide a Settlement Fund of at least $7,000,000 and no greater
than $9,000,000. (The Federal National Mortgage Association a.k.a. Fannie Mae is
also a defendant, and denies any violation of the TCPA.)
The “Settlement Class” is all present or former borrowers or co-borrowers whose
residential mortgage loan or home equity line of credit is or was serviced or subserviced
by Chase and either the borrower, co-borrower or both, were contacted on their cellular
telephone(s) by Chase through the use of an automated dialer system and/or an artificial
or pre-recorded voice during the Class Periods. Subclass A of the Settlement Class
consists of those persons whose cell phones were actually called by Chase during
the Class Period, and are thus entitled to a monetary payment.
