New TCPA Auto-Dialer Update Post-Marks
A new TCPA auto-dialer rules update out of Minnesota is the first TCPA ruling to reference the infamous Marks case. In today’s episode, Alex and Spencer discuss the Stewart L. Roark v. Credit One Bank case and what it means for collection agencies.
The Key Points
- Stewart L Roark versus Credit One Bank ruled an ATDS must have the present capacity to generate random or sequential numbers to dial.
- This is a direct contradiction against the Marks Ruling which stated that equipment only had to have the potential to generate random and sequential numbers are considered an ATDS.
- This is good news for collection agencies because almost any device has the potential to be an ATDS and the ruling will prevent unfair lawsuits.
