Angel Bakov v. Consolidated World Travel, Inc.

If You Are An Illinois Resident And Answered A Call From Holiday Cruise Line,

A Class Action Lawsuit May Affect Your Rights.

A federal court authorized this notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

A lawsuit has been filed against Consolidated World Travel, Inc., doing business as Holiday Cruise Line (“Defendant” or “CWT”), claiming that Defendant directed another company called Virtual Voice Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (“VVT”) to place telephone calls using a prerecorded voice to individuals without prior consent in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”).  If you were an Illinois resident and answered one of these calls from December 29, 2014 through March 20, 2016, you may be included in this class action lawsuit.

The Court has allowed the lawsuit to be a class action on behalf of all Illinois residents (1) whom VVT called from December 29, 2014 through March 20, 2016, to market a cruise aboard the Grand Celebration cruise liner sold by CWT, and (2) who answered such calls. The lawsuit is known as Angel Bakov v. Consolidated World Travel, Inc., Case No. 1:15-cv-02980 (N.D. Ill.). 

The Court has not decided whether Defendant did anything wrong.  There are no benefits available now, and no guarantee there will be.  However, if you received one of these calls, your legal rights are affected, and you have a choice to make now.

Your options – and the deadlines to exercise them – are explained in the notice.  To ask to be excluded, you must act before November 15, 2019.

Lawyers must prove the claims against Defendant at a trial.  If money or benefits are obtained from Defendant, you will be notified about how to ask for a share.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OPTIONS
Do Nothing

Stay in the lawsuit. Await the outcome. Give up certain rights.

By doing nothing, you keep the possibility of getting money or benefits that may come from a trial or a settlement.  But, you give up any rights to sue Defendant separately about the same legal claims made in this lawsuit

EXCLUDE YOURSELF BY November 15, 2019

Get out of this lawsuit. Keep rights. Give up possibility of getting money or benefits if obtained.

If you ask to be excluded and money or benefits are later awarded, you won't share in those. But, you keep any rights to sue Defendent separately about the same legal claims made in this lawsuit.
