SCOTUS Agrees To Decide Whether TCPA Exception For Calls To Collect Government Debts Violates First Amendment


The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether the Telephone Consumer Protection Act’s exception from its automated call restriction for calls to collect government debts violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The Court also agreed to decide whether the proper remedy for any constitutional violation is to sever the exception from the remainder of the TCPA.
