Facebook Wins! In a unanimous decision in the case of Facebook v. Deguid, the Supreme Court held, "To qualify as an 'automatic telephone dialing system' under the TCPA, a device must have the capacity either to store a telephone number using a random or sequential number generator, or to produce a telephone number using a random or sequential number generator."
This ruling overturns the previous ruling from the 9th Circuit, which broadly defined automatic telephone dialing systems as any equipment that has the capacity to store and automatically dial numbers, even if those numbers were not dialed randomly or sequentially.
The full opinion can be found here. This narrow reading has the potential to cut down TCPA class actions significantly. We are reviewing the case and will provide more analysis soon.
