California, North Carolina, Ohio and the US federal government have been awarded shares of awards made in criminal proceedings brought in the Illinois District Court against DISH NETWORK LLC for making "millions and millions" of calls to people who have recorded their numbers at the Do Not Call Registry. The total fines amounted to USD280 million. It got off lightly: the possible maximum was up to USD24,000 million say some reports. The judge made specific reference to the use of call centres for telemarketing.
