TELEPHONE CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT
For help with a TCPA claim
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (the "TCPA"), specifically 47 U.S.C. § 227(b)(1)(A)(iii), prohibits a person from making “any call using any automatic telephone dialing system ("ATDS") or an artificial or prerecorded voice” to any wireless telephone number.
However, the statute explicitly permits making autodialed or prerecorded message calls to a wireless number under two circumstances:
(1) if the call is made for an emergency purpose; or
(2) if the call is made with the prior express consent of the called party.
If you have been sued for violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, you should contact an attorney experienced in defending against TCPA lawsuits.
