The company, the U.S. government, and the states of California, Illinois, North Carolina and Ohio filed a stipulation of settlement with the federal court in Springfield, Illinois.

Dish had been sued in 2009 for allegedly violating several federal and state telemarketing and consumer fraud laws

A federal judge in 2017 found Dish liable and awarded the plaintiffs $280 million, but the federal appeals court in Chicago later ordered that damages be recalculated.
