Monthly TCPA Digest — June 2021

We are pleased to present our latest Monthly TCPA Digest, providing insights and news related to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). In this month’s Regulatory Update, we discuss the FCC’s plans to consider the creation of an online portal that would allow private entities to submit information about suspected robocalling and caller ID spoofing violations directly to the Commission’s Enforcement Bureau. In addition, we look at the Senate’s Deter Obnoxious, Nefarious and Outrageous Telephone (DO NOT) Call Act (S. 1913), which would impose strict new penalties for TCPA violations, as well as the FCC’s signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with the Australian Communications and Media Authority to help coordinate a global approach to addressing unlawful robocalls and spoofing. In our Litigation Update, we look at two recent district court rulings and how they may help to clarify the impact of the Supreme Court’s Facebook, Inc. v. Duguid decision on future TCPA-related litigation.

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.
