In an op-ed appearing in the CNN on November 9, 2018, Margot Saunders discusses businesses use of robocalls for debt collection and telemarketing and their efforts to capitalize on a recent DC Circuit Court decision that tasked the FCC with revisiting some of the rules that govern robocalls under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

“The division is not over whether robocalls generally are a nuisance that should be addressed, but over which robocalls should be stopped … partisan lines have been drawn over whether some well-known companies, including many creditors and debt collectors, should be exempted from the TCPA’s restrictions altogether.”
