The 2020 presidential campaign for Michael Bloomberg, a billionaire media mogul and former New York City mayor, lasted barely more than 3 months and cost a reported $1 billion—mostly coming out of his own pocket.
TCPA litigators and serial plaintiffs want to infiltrate your marketing campaigns. Their modus operandi involves taking advantage of unsuspecting marketers and well-intentioned companies who may not know that they are required to abide by the TCPA.
As we find ourselves in limbo between the anticlimactic Barr Supreme Court case and the potentially momentous Facebook case, Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) litigation continue apace. Two recent court decisions illustrate just how expensive TCPA class actions can be for defendants and how lucrative they can be for plaintiffs attorneys.
A Georgia state legislator faces a class action for alleged Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) violations committed in service of her campaign for a congressional seat.
The entire telemarketing industry is awaiting the Supreme Court’s decision in AAPC v. Barr, the case that very may well invalidate the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) in its entirety. However, the possibility that the main federal enforcement mechanism for regulating telemarketing may soon disappear is no reason for marketers to become lax in their compliance efforts.
While everybody waits to see if the government-backed debt exemption leads to the Supreme Court potentially invalidating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) entirely, a district court somewhat surprisingly decided to enforce that same debt exemption.
Craig Cunningham is among the most notorious serial plaintiffs in consumer protection law, but his most recent attempt to enrich himself thanks to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) has been unsuccessful.

American Association of Political Consultants et al., about to be argued before the Supreme Court). Its flaws and inconsistencies have created a cottage industry of lawsuit-mill litigators.
