Law360 Quotes Shaffer Regarding Expansion of TCPA Defense Options

October 22, 2013

Olshan Partner Scott Shaffer was quoted in a Law360 article (subscription required) as an expert on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. The article concerned a recent California ruling determining that dialing machines without number generators are not covered under the statute.  Shaffer  pointed out that, “the decision could provide a new avenue of defense in TCPA class actions. It's a very technical, fact-specific defense, but if a company is looking at a multimillion-dollar exposure, it is well worth the effort to prove that the dialer does not have that capacity to store or produce numbers using a random or sequential generator."
