In Stoops v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. , No. 3:15-cv-00083-KRG, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 82380 (W.D. Pa. June 24, 2016), the district court granted the defendant summary judgment because the plaintiff lacked constitutional and prudential standing. The professional TCPA plaintiff could not prove that she suffered an injury-in-fact to confer Article III standing. Id. at * 26 (citingSpokeo , 136 S. Ct. at 1547). She had purchased wireless phones with numbers from economically depressed areas out-of-state, in the singular hope of receiving calls in search of delinquent customers of these reassigned numbers. Additionally, prudential standing was lacking because she sought to receive the alleged calls and profit from the TCPA’s statutory damages. Her interests, therefore, were outside the statute’s protected zone of interests—“privacy, peace, and quiet.”
