ATDS Definition - Supreme Court will Review Circuit Split in Facebook v. Duguid
P2P Declaratory Ruling by the FCC
The FCC has not provided much guidance on the issue of the ATDS definition and its proceedings seeking public comment regarding what constitutes an ATDS have been pending since May of 2018. However, the FCC recently issued a relevant declaratory ruling concluding that “if a calling platform is not capable of originating a call or sending a text without a person actively and affirmatively manually dialing each [number], that platform is not an autodialer and calls or texts made using it are not subject to the TCPA’s restrictions[.]” The panelists will discuss this ruling by the FCC and what impact it will have in TCPA litigation across the board.
Please join us for this relevant and timely webinar. The panelists will provide you with expert analysis and practical insights on the TCPA updates of Summer 2020.
