Unprecedented TCPA Podcast Ep 17 NOW AVAILABLE: The TEAM Breaks Down TCPA SCOTUS Ruling in Barr v. AAPC

Well folks this was supposed to be the big news of the day, but it was entirely overshadowed by the huge news that Facebook’s cert. petition to the Supremes was granted–meaning that the Supreme Court will resolve the ongoing circuit split over the TCPA’s ATDS definition. 

Nonetheless, the big SCOTUS ruling from this year is Barr v. AAPC and it has wide-ranging implications on the First Amendment and the TCPA alike.

In Episode 17 of the Unprecedented podcast, the team (Czar, Archduke, Grand Duchess, Countess and Apprentice) break down the Barr v. AAPC ruling from every angle and discuss how it came to be and what it means for the future of the TCPA–and the First Amendment.

  1. Great podcast. An issue that I think warrants more discussion is FN12 of Justice Kavanaugh’s opinion.

    I read this FN to mean that anyone who made calls in reliance on the exemption should not be liable. Even notwithstanding the various issues with the Court’s opinion, the exemption should remain a viable defense for calls made between 2015 and the decision.

    I’d be curious to hear what the folks at TCPA World think about the issue.
