Kelley Drye's Communications Practice Group presents this tracker of active Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA") petitions before the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC"). With the recent increase in litigation regarding alleged violations of the TCPA, many issues relating to the interpretation of the statute have been presented to the FCC by impacted parties. These petitions can be primary jurisdiction referrals or be presented directly by a litigant in a TCPA action. The FCC currently has a number of petitions pending related to TCPA interpretation. The tracker below briefly summarizes each petition and the issues presented in them.
