Monthly TCPA Digest – February 2020

We are pleased to present our latest Monthly TCPA Digest, providing insights and news related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). This month we cover recent 7th Circuit and 11th Circuit decisions favoring defendants in cases involving claims of TCPA violations. Read our Litigation Update for details on the reasoning behind these favorable appellate rulings.

We also report on comments received from stakeholders in response to the FCC’s Public Notice soliciting input for its first staff report on call blocking. Read our Regulatory Update for a summary of the industry’s progress on implementing SHAKEN/STIR and associated requirements.

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.
