Strategies in TCPA Defense Post ACA International


Court rejects broadened interpretation of ATDS.

In 2015, the FCC  Federal Communications Commission extended the reach of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which caused petitioners appealed Declaratory Ruling 15-72 and challenged four findings that flipped the TCPA law on its head. In March 2018, a decision was issued that set aside two FCC rulings and upheld two others. This white paper reviews those issues and discusses how certain TCPA cases may be cost-prohibitive for plaintiffs.
