Indiana settled claims against nine companies accused of violating the state's do-not-call list, the first penalties assessed under the law since the list took effect Jan. 1, the state attorney general's office said yesterday.

Penalties collected from the companies totaled $28,625. America's Digital Satellite Telephone, Las Vegas, paid the most at $6,825 to settle charges stemming from 13 complaints of list violations.

More than 1 million consumers are registered for the Indiana DNC list.

The attorney general's office has received 2,261 complaints of violations, 594 of which have been investigated and closed by the office.
