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 the FCC’s unanimous adoption of updated anti-spoofing rules that encompass malicious spoofing originating outside the U.S. directed at consumers within the U.S. and comments on proposed rules regarding default opt-out call blocking. We also review a recent TCPA case at the Eleventh Circuit, Gorss Motels, Inc. v. Safemark Systems, Inc. In Gorss, the court confirmed the invalidity of the FCC’s solicited-fax rule, which required solicited faxes to include compliant opt-out notices. In addition, a concurring opinion called for the full Eleventh Circuit to review its precedent holding that the Hobbs Act requires district courts to treat agency orders interpreting federal laws as binding.
