Welcome to the Information Website for the Wright, et al. v. Nationstar Mortgage LLC Class Action Settlement.
If you received a call from Nationstar on your cell phone regarding a mortgage loan, a class action settlement may affect your rights.
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Nationstar Mortgage LLC (“Defendant” or “Nationstar”). The suit concerns whether Nationstar violated a federal law called the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by making autodialed, artificial or prerecorded voice calls to the cellular telephones of consumers relating to a mortgage loan. Nationstar denies any wrongdoing, denies that it violated any law, and maintains that its calls regarding mortgage loans provided information that its customers agreed to receive, and that the calls were made with their consent. The Settlement does not establish who is correct, but rather, is a compromise to end the lawsuit.
You are included in the Settlement if Nationstar had your cellular telephone number in its records as of October 14, 2015. You may be entitled to a cash payment if you complete and return a Claim Form, and you have the option of requesting that Nationstar no longer place calls to your cellular telephone number(s) (which you may do by submitting a Request Form or by notifying the Settlement Administrator by telephone at 1-877-683-9363).
Please read this carefully. Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act.
Those who submit valid claims will be eligible to receive an equal share of a $12.1 million Settlement Fund that Nationstar has agreed to establish. Each individual who submits a valid claim will receive a portion of this fund, after all notice and administration costs, the incentive award, and attorneys’ fees have been paid. Nationstar has also agreed to implement procedures to reasonably ensure that Class Members’ requests to stop automated, artificial or prerecorded calls to their cellular telephone numbers will be honored in the future.
