TelemarketingMarch2014

 

Complainants filed a substantial volume of TCPA class actions during Q4 of 2013. Of the 92 complaints filed during the period, there was a preference toward complaints involving transmissions to mobile phones. One explanation for the substantial number of complaints filed during the period is the October 16, 2013, effective date of the FCC’s new consent requirements for certain autodialed and prerecorded telemarketing calls.
