So I’ve been covering the TCPA beat for years now–as you all know– and virtually every morning I wake up to a handful–and sometimes up to a dozen–new TCPA cases to report on.
But for some reason it has been extremely quiet on the TCPA decisional front lately. August, 2022 marks the lowest number of decided cases I have seen since I started TCPAWorld over three years ago.
On the other hand, TCPA filings are spiking. A huge number of cases have been filed in the last 60 days–and the Troutman Firm has been retained to defend ten class actions in the last month (including a bunch we are taking over from “big law” firms)! Good thing I have another new lawyer starting today. 🙂 Fun.
But what I am trying to figure out is why there are so few TCPA opinions recently, even while new cases keep pouring in. The only thing I can think of is that folks are settling more quickly. Or maybe judges are just on summer break. Who knows.
I will say this though–anytime TCPAWorld sees a period of calm there is always a storm coming. So watch out.
In the meantime, I’m really looking forward to contact.io–flying in to Denver late this evening. Will have a whole party bus with me– including the mysterious new DAME of TCPAWorld, who I will be introducing you folks to later today. Looking forward to it.
Anyway, for those of you desperately seeking the comfort and normalcy offered by the sound of the Czar’s voice you can always re-watch some of our outstanding Deserve to Win episodes to get ready for next week’s HUGE drop of Episode 4.
