DISH fined $280M over robocalls suit

U.S. District Judge Sue Myerscough imposed a $280 million fine on DISH Network Corp. in a lawsuit over telemarketing violations, according to a June 5 court filing.

DISH has been ordered to pay $168 million to the federal government and $84 million to the states of California, Illinois, North Carolina and Ohio for making robocalls to people on do-not-call lists. The judge also awarded an additional $28 million in fines to California, North Carolina and Ohio for violations of state law.

Further, the judge ordered the supervision of DISH's telemarketing practices under a 20-year plan.

A company spokesman, meanwhile, said the company will file an appeal, Bloomberg News reported June 5.
