Monthly TCPA Digest – July 2019

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).

Our July issue recaps the July 11 SHAKEN/STIR Robocall Summit, reports on an upcoming FCC vote on banning the malicious caller ID spoofing of text messages and international calls, and covers responses submitted by voice service providers to a request from FCC Commissioner Geoffrey Starks for updates regarding their progress on robocall blocking. You’ll also find due dates for comments on a proposed rulemaking as well as on a Request for Clarification regarding the Established Business Relationship exception to the TCPA.

In our Legislative Update, we cover Congress’s progress toward passage of a robocall bill, including the House’s Stopping Bad Robocalls Act, which is expected to pass a House vote, and the TRACED Act, approved by the Senate last month.

We also review a recent decision by the Eighth Circuit to uphold a trial court’s reduction in damages – a ruling offering hope that courts can and will examine the totality of the circumstances when assessing TCPA damage awards.

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.
