Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Supreme Court heard oral argument via teleconference on a case challenging a government-debt exception to the robocall ban to cell phones. The 1991 Telephone Consumer Protection Act bans automated calls to cell phones, although exceptions include: emergency purposes, prior consent from the party, and calls to collect debt on behalf of the United States. The American Association of Political Consultants Inc. filed suit concerning the last exception pertaining to government calls, saying it violates free speech. On July 5, 2020, the Supreme Court decided 6-3 to invalidate the government debt call exception. close
