US FEDERAL TRACED ACT AND STATE LAWS AIMED AT COMBATING ROBOCALLS

On 15 January, Eversheds Sutherland published an alert which says that 2019 saw an effort by both Congress and various state legislatures to reduce the volume of robocalling and “spoofed” calls. Robocalls are pre-recorded calls placed through automated dialing equipment while spoofed calls falsely appear to come from a particular area code or legitimate place of business to increase the recipient’s chances of answering.  The alert provides a general overview of the federal Act and also discusses several notable examples of state laws passed in 2019 aimed at reducing robocalling and spoofing.
