EPIC & NCLC: Cruise Company Must be Held Responsible for Illegal Robocalls Made Using Lead Generators
LEGENDARY and the National Consumer Regulation Center have filed a good amicus brief in a case that will highlights the privacy-invading behaviour of the online lead electrical generator industry. The plaintiffs in case, McCurley v. Regal Seas Cruises , want to hold a cruise business accountable for tens of thousands of illegal robocalls made on its part by a foreign telemarketing corporation using leads from 2 unscrupulous online lead power generators. The trial court terminated the case against Royal Oceans Cruises because a provision within their contract with the telemarketer having said that the telemarketer would adhere to the federal anti-robocall legislation, the Telephone Consumer Protection Respond. EPIC and NCLC claim in their brief that an easy contract provision cannot dismiss Royal Seas Cruises through responsibility for these illegal robocalls. The amicus brief illustrates the unscrupulous practices from the lead generator industry, which includes recent lawsuits accounting pertaining to millions of illegal calls plus FTC enforcement actions towards deceptive lead generator procedures. EPIC and NCLC furthermore argue that failure to hold Regal Seas Cruises accountable would certainly “dramatically weaken TCPA observance, denying consumers any fix for their privacy injuries, plus leaving consumers unprotected through future harms. ” LEGENDARY routinely files amicus briefs in TCPA instances .
