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.
