Almost everyone has a cell phone. And, at some point, almost everyone has received an annoying unsolicited call or text message on their cell phone.
Some of the most common complaints to government officials concern robocalls, unsolicited calls, and spam text messages. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) provides an option to fight back against these annoying calls and texts. The TCPA may prohibit a company from calling you on your cell phone or sending you text messages without your written consent. The penalty for violating the TCPA can be up to $1,500 per call or text.
This presentation will discuss the requirements for a successful TCPA case, recent developments in this area of the law, and what makes certain TCPA cases better than others.
