10 Things You Need to Know About the Long-Awaited D.C. Circuit’s TCPA Ruling

Well the big ruling is out. Last Friday the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeal handed down its long awaited ruling in ACA Int’l v. FCC, No. 15-1211, Doc. No. 1722606 (D.C. Cir. Mar. 16, 2018). The truth is, however, for every TCPA question the D.C. Circuit answered its ruling raises many more. Indeed, Judge Srinivasan’s opinion poses at least a dozen specific questions back to the Commission to consider on remand. Unfortunately, therefore, we are all a long way from having final answers on most issues. I guess that’s not really much of a surprise, however, since nothing is ever simple in TCPAland. That said, with Chairman Ajit Pai at the helm of the FCC, industry has very good cause to think that real TCPA change is on the horizon.
