Monthly TCPA Digest — March 2020

We are pleased to present our latest Monthly TCPA Digest, providing insights and news related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). In this edition, we report on an FCC order released on March 10 that, if adopted, would mandate that all originating and terminating voice service providers implement the STIR/SHAKEN caller ID authentication framework in the IP portions of their networks by June 30, 2021 — consistent with the deadline in the TRACED Act. The FCC is also reviewing comments submitted in response to Public Notices on other robocall mitigation issues. Read more in our Regulatory Update.

Foremost among the cases we discuss in our Litigation Update is Barr v. American Association of Political Consultants Inc., now before the Supreme Court. Arguments are scheduled to be heard on April 22, 2020. Several TCPA cases are now halted pending the Court’s Barr decision, which could upend the TCPA’s ATDS provisions.

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.
