The problem with this settlement is determining to the best of your ability if you are part of the class. I am not sure how the claims administrator can confirm your membership even if it has the audiotapes (and why haven't those tapes destroyed as part iof the settlement). But the maximum payout is $5,000 so the actual amount paid out could be significant depending on the number of claimants.
This lawsuit alleges that Six Continents Hotels in California has allegedly monitored and recorded incoming calls without notifying callers, against California state law. Callers who spoke to a Six Continents Hotels representative on a toll-free number between March 1, 2011 and July 18, 2012 could be entitled to a cash payment from the class action settlement.
