Holding: 1) An unaccepted settlement offer or offer of judgment does not moot a plaintiff's case, so the district court retains jurisdiction to adjudicate the plaintiff’s complaint. 2) A federal contractor is not entitled to immunity from suit for its violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act when it violated both federal law and the government's explicit instructions.
Judgment: Affirmed and remanded, 6-3, in an opinion by Justice Ginsburg on January 20, 2016. Justice Thomas filed an opinion concurring in the judgment. Chief Justice Roberts filed a dissenting opinion, in which Justices Scalia and Alito joined. Justice Alito filed a dissenting opinion.
