TCPA Webinar to Give Guidance on Use of ATDS Following 9th Circuit Ruling

Oct. 1, 2018 — Maurice Wutscher attorney Donald Maurice will discuss how to properly interpret the Telephone Consumer Protection Act following the Ninth Circuit’s ruling in Marks v. Crunch San Diego, LLC during a webinar Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET.

He will be joined by Abbas Kazerounian of Kazerouni Law Group APC who represented the consumer in Marks, where the principal issue on appeal was whether a text message sending device qualified as an ATDS for TCPA purposes.

In its decision, the Ninth Circuit adopted a broad definition of ATDS under the TCPA, holding that the term automatic telephone dialing system as defined by the federal act includes devices that store telephone numbers to be called, “whether or not those numbers have been generated by a random or sequential number generator.”

The webinar will be presented by the American Bar Association’s Consumer Financial Services Committee. To join the webinar, click here.
