Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) could be facing a class-action lawsuit stemming from the marketing campaign for his movie about the “war on Christmas.”

Attorneys for Dorit and Ron Golan claim that more than 4 million calls were made to market Huckabee’s film, “Last Ounce of Courage,” which could potentially violate the Telephone Consumer Protection Act that says unrequested messages with commercial content are illegal.

Individuals who could have received robocalls from the former governor received mailers last week, saying they may be eligible to become members of a lawsuit against the governor.

“If you received one or more telephone calls that used the recorded voice of Mike Huckabee to deliver a message as part of a campaign for the movie 'Last Ounce of Courage', you may be a class member in a class action lawsuit,” the letters read.

The case was originally dismissed in May 2014, but the class action was certified by a St. Louis U.S. District Court judge in January.
