TCPA & Consumer Calling Digest – September 2018

September 20, 2018 | Article | By Joshua Briones, Russell Fox, Alexander Hecht, Jennifer Lynn Kelly, Radhika Bhat, Anne-Marie Dao, Crystal Lopez, Esteban Morales, Nicole Ozeran, Natalie Prescott, Elana R. Safner

In this issue, we look at industry comments on the FCC’s report on robocalling and efforts to urge the agency to reconsider its reassigned numbers database proposal. In addition, we examine a recent circuit split on what constitutes an automatic telephone dialing system (ATDS) in the Third and Ninth Circuits and what that means for TCPA defendants. The split follows the D.C. Circuit’s May 2018 decision in ACA International v. Federal Communications Commission, which set aside the FCC’s “unreasonably expansive interpretation” of what constitutes an automatic telephone dialing system.

TCPA & Consumer Calling Digest - August 2018

August 13, 2018 | Article | By Joshua Briones, Russell Fox, Alexander Hecht, Jennifer Lynn Kelly, Radhika Bhat, Anne-Marie Dao, Crystal Lopez, Esteban Morales, Nicole Ozeran, Natalie Prescott, Elana R. Safner

This issue provides insurance information for companies facing TCPA lawsuits and identifies the types of policies and provisions that may offer coverage. You will also find an update on the status of the proposed reassigned numbers database as well as information about a new FCC Public Notice, released August 10. Comments on the Public Notice are expected to lay the groundwork for the FCC’s next major action on call blocking and methods to eliminate illegal robocalls.

TCPA & Consumer Calling Digest - July 2018

July 18, 2018 | Article | By Joshua Briones, Russell Fox, Alexander Hecht, Jennifer Lynn Kelly, Radhika Bhat, Anne-Marie Dao, Crystal Lopez, Esteban Morales, Nicole Ozeran, Natalie Prescott, Elana Safner

This issue includes an update on activity at the FCC, specifically the agency’s progress in evaluating comments received in several ongoing TCPA proceedings. In addition, in our Class Action Update, we look at the current understanding of what constitutes an ATDS and why, in the wake of ACA International, it may be more difficult for plaintiffs to demonstrate that the companies they are suing used ATDS devices.

After the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia released its highly anticipated decision in ACA International v. Federal Communications Commission, courts have been addressing issues raised in that case. We previously summarized the opinion — which raises four issues, one of which is what constitutes an Automatic Telephone Dialing System (“ATDS”).
