This episode is the second in our series devoted to covering noteworthy developments relating to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). This series covers decisions from the FCC and federal courts, as well as any TCPA-related activity on Capitol Hill. In this episode, partner Steve Augustino and associate Jennifer Wainwright start off by discussing the 2015 TCPA Declaratory Ruling and Order and providing predictions on how the D.C. Circuit might rule in the pending appeal of the order. Second, they talk about recent activity related to the TCPA exemption for calls made on behalf of the Federal government, including for debt collection purposes. Third, they examine the FCC’s recent focus on “robocalls” and assess Chairman Pai’s likely approach on this and other TCPA issues. Fourth, they discuss the potential outcomes in the appeal of the FCC’s 2014 order which granted a retroactive waiver of the disclosure rules for "solicited" faxes.* Finally, they look at two recent noteworthy TCPA petitions filed by consumer class action plaintiffs. *Note that this podcast was recorded prior to the release of the D.C. Circuit’s decision in Bais Yaakov of Spring Valley et al. v. FCC. A separate podcast on the implications of this decision for fax advertisers will be available soon.
