Judge rules that certain automated insurance policy review reminders were not considered telemarketing

A Federal Judge recently granted summary judgement in a TCPA case in favor of Blue Shield of California.

Judge Cormac Carney ruled that the call was informational rather than marketing, ending the suit, which had claimed the messages were marketing in nature and therefore required “written consent.”
