Dish Fails to Reduce Landmark Robocalling Fine -

[unable to retrieve full-text content]

Dish has failed to reduce a historic fine levied against the satellite TV provider for robocalling customers that had signed up for the national Do Not Call Registry. The company was hit with a record $280 million fine back in June, the largest robocall-related settlement of its kind. But Dish was also hit with another, $61 million judgment for violating telemarketing rules. So far, Dish's attempts to reduce the penalties have gone nowhere, with a federal judge in North Carolina this week refusing to reduce the $61 million penalty, rebuking Dish's claim that the fines are "grossly excessive," and insisting the massive fines are "necessary for deterrence in light of Dish s actions."
