Supreme Court to Review Constitutionality of Federal Robocall Ban:
The Supreme Court has aqreed to hear a challenge to the constitutionality of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, a federal law that prohibits unwanted robocalls. The law generally restricts the use of autodialers, but in 2015 Congress created an exception for robocalls to collect debts guaranteed by the federal government. Several groups have since challenged the law on First Amendment grounds, arguing that the TCPA discriminates against particular speakers. The Court will now consider the issue in Barr v. American Association of Political Consultants.
