AG: Settlement reached in robocall lawsuit

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Attorney General Dustin
McDaniel says his office has reached a settlement with a
Florida-based company that has been accused of placing thousands of
unsolicited calls to residents.
      McDaniel said in a news release Thursday that Explicit Media and
its owners agreed to stop using robocalls, or pre-recorded calls.
      Explicit Media was one of six companies McDaniel sued last year
over the practice.
      The settlement requires Explicit Media to refrain from using an
automated system for the selection and dialing of telephone
numbers. It also calls for the company to refrain from displaying
any fictitious or misleading information on a consumer's caller ID.
      Explicit Media must pay the state of Arkansas $40,000 to defray
enforcement costs.
      A telephone listing for Explicit Media in Florida couldn't be
located.
