We are pleased to present the latest edition of our Monthly TCPA Digest, providing insights and news related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

In this issue, we discuss several significant TCPA-related proceedings and matters at the FCC. Among these are the FCC’s adoption of a rule that enables voice service providers to provide default call blocking and its efforts to seek details about how carriers intend to offer it. Other FCC actions we detail include the agency’s upcoming summit on SHAKEN/STIR and its ongoing review of petitions and responses related to its plan to establish a comprehensive Reassigned Numbers Database. We also review the U.S. Senate’s passage of the TRACED Act and other congressional efforts to address robocalls. In addition, we cover a Fourth Circuit ruling that upheld a $61 million judgment against Dish Network for a third-party agent’s TCPA violation and the Third Circuit’s recent guidance on the TCPA’s prohibition on unsolicited advertisements.

If you have suggestions for topics you’d like us to feature in this newsletter, or any questions about the content in this issue, please feel free to reach out to an attorney on Mintz’s TCPA and Consumer Calling Practice Team. You can click here to subscribe to the Monthly TCPA Digest.
