While we've noted the fact that many telemarketers are clearly ignoring things like the Do Not Call list, it appears that more and more people are figuring out that they can fight back on their own. Consumerist has the story of one woman who followed the suggestions at the Kill the Calls website and was able to successfully sue a telemarketer in small claims court... and win. It does sound like a fair amount of work, but for those who have the time and the anger at receiving too many intrusive telemarketing calls, apparently it can work -- even if the company in question sends its chief legal counsel across the country to defend its practices.
