A now-defunct home improvement company has been hit with a $459 million “junk fax” judgment following a four-hour bench trial, said plaintiffs attorney Marc B. Hershovitz. The case, originally filed in 2003, targeted American Home Services Inc. for sending unsolicited fax advertisements to 306,000 class members in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
“That’s $1,500 per class member,” said Hershovitz. “American Home Services really liked sending junk faxes.”
