A federal judge in Raleigh, North Carolina, has tripled the amount of
money Dish Network must pay 50,000 state residents on the federal Do
Not Call registry after the satellite TV company illegally robocalled
them.

The ruling ups individual payouts by Dish to $1,200 per person,
resulting in a total payout of as much as $60 million.

In January, a jury decided to give $400 to each individual on the
registry impacted by the Dish telemarketing campaign. According to
Associated Press, however, Judge Catherine C. Eagles ruled earlier
this week that the award should be increased to $1,200 per person.
