NAFCU preparation in FCC suit moves forward

NAFCU on Friday filed its statement of issues for its suit against the Federal Communications Commission regarding autodialed calls to account holders, detailing the issues the association may address in its joint brief with other petitioners.

Last month, a federal appeals court judge ruled that NAFCU could enter a suit challenging the FCC’s order on Telephone Consumer Protection Act prohibitions on autodialed calls. The joint brief in which NAFCU will participate will be filed Dec. 2.

The association filed its motion to intervene in September and has now become a party in the petition filed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce seeking a review of the FCC order.
