A small handful of states have enacted their take on the Federal
Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA"), prohibiting the use of
automated telephone sales calls without prior express written
consent. These laws are designed to protect consumers from receiving
unauthorized and unwanted telemarketing calls. Oklahoma recently
passed such legislation, the OTSA, which is based in large part on the
Florida Telephone Solicitation Act ("FTSA"). Readers of our blog know
that the FTSA imposed additional restrictions on telemarketing beyond
those contained in the TCPA and created a state-based avenue for
telemarketing litigation. Over the last year, FTSA lawsuits have
changed the telemarketing landscape in Florida. In all likelihood, we
can expect to see a similar bombardment of lawsuits alleging
violations of the OTSA.
