The Federal Court in both the Northern District of Illinois and the Southern District of New York have seen an increasing number of Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) suits. These suits involve telemarketing calls, often made to cell phones, which allegedly violate TCPA compliance. Many of these suits have been filed as putative class actions, with potentially millions of dollars in damages at stake.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) enforces the TCPA, which is a federal consumer protection law that restricts telemarketing calls and the use of automatic dialing systems. Plaintiffs in these TCPA class actions typically allege violations of the TCPA in connection with telephone calls made by telemarketers.
Both the Northern and Southern District Courts have seen a number of TCPA class actions, with many plaintiffs seeking summary judgment against defendants for alleged TCPA violations.
