TCPA Allows Consent Through Intermediaries

The Eleventh Circuit,   U.S. Court of Appeals,   held that the TCPA allows callers to obtain consent through intermediaries.

The Court also held that a 2008 FCC Ruling interpreting the “prior express consent” defense applies to all creditors and debt collectors, including medical debt collectors, when calling wireless telephone numbers.

The 11th Circuit held  that the district court lacked jurisdiction to consider the validity of the 2008 FCC Ruling, pursuant to the Hobbs Act.
