The firm served as lead counsel and secured the denial of class certification in a class action filed against Cingular Wireless in Georgia state court alleging “spam-fax” claims under the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and seeking class-wide damages of $750 million. The trial court’s denial of class certification was affirmed on appeal by the Georgia Court of Appeals. This victory was significant because Georgia had been a leading jurisdiction favoring the certification of class actions under the TCPA. McGarry v. Cingular Wireless LLC, 267 Ga. App. 23, 599 S.E.2d 34 (2004).
