“We Still Don’t Know” What Can And Can’t Be Used, Says TCPA Lawyer

Though the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently gave companies expanded power to block unwanted calls, the lack of clarity on what does and does not constitute an illegal autodialer makes compliance difficult, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Companies have been without guidance since last spring, when the D.C. Circuit struck down the FCC’s  definition of autodialer for being too broad. Becca Wahlquist, a partner with the Snell & Wilmer law firm who defends Telephone Consumer Protection Act cases, says companies continue to get sued under the law even though “we still don’t know what it is we are supposed to be using.”

The FCC has been collecting public comments as it considers a new definition.
