Cohen & Malad, LLP filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of numerous businesses that received unsolicited fax advertisements from Global Gate Controls, Inc. The lawsuit alleges these business owners did not give permission to or request information from Global Gate Controls, Inc. pursuant to the Junk Fax Act. This legislation was created by Congress to protect businesses from incurring expenses of unauthorized faxes sent for marketing purposes.

The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for the receipt of the unwanted faxes as well as the impact to customer service that occurred as a result of the fax machine being unavailable to receive legitimate faxes.
