SCOTUS Accepts Review Of TCPA "Autodialer" Question [telecom]

by Arianna Evers and Reade Jacob

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to wade into the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA") fray again - this time over what qualifies as an autodialer under the TCPA. On July 9, 2020, the Supreme Court granted writ of certiorari in the case of Facebook Inc. v. Duguid, et. al., on the question of whether an "automatic telephone dialing system" ("ATDS") under the TCPA covers only devices that send messages or make calls to randomly or sequentially generated phone numbers, or whether the term more broadly includes all devices with the capacity to store automatically dialed numbers.
