On April 7, Contact Center Compliance hosted the second session in our ongoing Masterclass series. This session focused on consent and text message marketing, with a notable influence from the recent, significant Supreme Court ruling in Facebook v. Duguid.
It took less than a week for a District Court to cite the Supreme Court’s ruling in Facebook v. Duguid. In Montanez v. Future Vision Brain Bank, a Colorado court mentions the landmark SCOTUS ruling in Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) case against a cannabis dispensary. However, the court did not cite Facebook in order to dismiss the case—at least, not yet.

Upending Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) enforcement as we know it, the court finally set a nationwide precedent for how to interpret the law’s definition of automatic telephone dialing system (ATDS).
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) was signed into law in 1991. For perspective, that’s one year before the invention of SMS text messaging. Yet, this thirty-year-old piece of legislation remains the centerpiece of federal telemarketing regulation deep into the smartphone era.
Following December’s oral arguments, the entire telemarketing industry is awaiting the Supreme Court’s decision in Facebook v. Duguid. Apparently, many lower courts that hear Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) cases are doing so, as well.
On Friday, two district court judges within the same district delivered rulings in Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) lawsuits that created a jurisdictional split on the constitutionality of the TCPA between November 2015 and June 2020.
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Facebook v. Duguid on the morning of Tuesday, December 8.
