Bloomberg Law (Tech & Telecom Law), Daily Journal and Law360

Stroock partner Stephen Newman, was quoted in Bloomberg LawDaily Journal and Law360 pieces discussing the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent unanimous decision limiting the decades-old federal ban on robocalls. In a major win for the social media company, the Court tossed out a lawsuit that accused Facebook of repeatedly sending unwanted text messages. Although the ruling will give telemarketers, businesses and political parties greater freedom to use computer systems to call or text message mobile phones without first obtaining consent, it does not affect a separate section of the anti-robocall law that protects residential phones. 

Newman, a highly regarded litigator and class action defense lawyer, noted that, as a practical matter, the Court’s decision will eliminate all litigation under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA) except for cases based on pre-recorded voice calls.
