BATON ROUGE, La. (WTVA) -- There is a $9.75 million Settlement in a class action lawsuit with RPM Pizza, LLC ("RPM"), a Domino's Pizza franchised operator.
The lawsuit claims that the Defendants violated federal law by sending pre-recorded messages ("robo-calls") about pizza and other food products to consumers in Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi without the recipients' prior express consent.
