We are pleased to announce our latest installment of “From Both Sides,” a unique webinar series featuring the insights of well-known plaintiff’s lawyers and Ballard Spahr Consumer Financial Services attorneys on various consumer statutes. This program will focus on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act—another statute that gives rise to thousands of lawsuits each year, and which recently has seen significant case law and regulatory developments. Abbas Kazerounian, founding partner of Kazerouni Law Group, APC, will join Ballard Spahr lawyers to discuss plaintiffs’ and defendants’ perspectives on TCPA issues and developments, including:

  • The TCPA’s statutory purposes, requirements, and civil damages provisions;

  • The definition of "automatic telephone dialing system," including the current efforts by the FCC to interpret the phrase, and the latest case law interpretations;

  • The definition of "prior express consent," and the latest judicial and regulatory guidance on how such consent may be revoked;

  • Treatment of calls to reassigned wireless numbers;

  • Potential vicarious liability for TCPA violations by third parties; and

  • Amenability of TCPA claims to class litigation.
