ACA International CEO Mark Neeb Issues Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Ruling in Facebook v. Duguid

April 1, 2021 – Washington, D.C. – ACA International CEO Mark Neeb released a statement today on the U.S. Supreme Court’s unanimous favorable ruling on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and definition of an autodialer in Facebook v. Duguid.

“The Supreme Court’s decision today in Facebook vindicates the more than decade of advocacy ACA International and its members have engaged in to seek clarity on the TCPA, which is often abused by lawyers in the plaintiffs’ bar seeking to profit off of small businesses and other legitimate informational callers. The Supreme Court’s decision is an important step forward in recognizing that Congress has always intended this statute for abusive telemarketers or bad actors, not legitimate callers that consumers need information from.”

ACA and industry trade associations filed an amici curiae brief in the case to advocate for legal clarity when using modern methods to communicate with consumers as well as clarity on the definition of an autodialer.

ACA has been advocating with the Federal Communications Commission, Congress, and at the Supreme Court to take action to provide clarity surrounding overbroad interpretations of an ATDS. This decision is a step forward in those efforts to clarify the law.
