FTC Wins Appeal

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the order blocking the FTC from enforcing the Do-Not-Call List. The three judge panel concluded that “there is a substantial likelihood that the FTC will be able to show … that the list directly advances the government’s substantial interest and is narrowly tailored,”. The ruling allows the FTC to administer and enforce the list while the issue of constitutinality works it’s way throught the courts. The FCC has been enforcing the list since October 1st and has registered over 1,000 complaints of telemarketer calls to phone numbers on the registry. The complete decision is available from the 10th Ciruit in PDF format.
