Text Messages Are Still Not Voices

Good news! At least as of now…

So back in 2021, Jay Edelman was granted leave of court to file a complaint alleging an extremely dangerous argument that text message “chatbot” constitutes a prerecorded voice. Risher v. Adecco, No. 19-CV-05602-RS, 2021 WL 9182421 (N.D. Cal. Sept. 17, 2021)

Why is this extremely dangerous? Well, if they were to succeed then every text message, even if ATDS was not utilized, would be subject to the TCPA.
