    Named in a TCPA Lawsuit? Liability Strategy May Avoid Crippling Damages

    Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) class action lawsuits are booming, and plaintiffs are commonly seeking tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars in damages. These cases often arise out of a marketing campaign that allegedly made a large number of autodialed or pre-recorded telephone calls and/or sent many text messages. Because the TCPA sets statutory damages at $500 to $1,500 per unlawful call or text, the aggregate financial exposure can be crippling (as an example, on February 26th Life Time Fitness agreed to pay up to $15 million to end TCPA suits). Of corresponding concern, plaintiffs may overreach and sue every entity conceivably connected to these marketing campaigns.

    FCC’s Decision on Net Neutrality Likely to Lead to Litigation


    In a historic 3-2 vote on Thursday, February 26th, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to approve net neutrality rules aimed at governing Internet traffic. The FCC’s decision would expand government oversight for Internet service by treating it as a “public utility” or “common carrier service” under Title II of the 1996 Telecommunications Act. Historically, only fixed broadband services (i.e., cable and telephone) have been regulated under Title II. This new regulation will require Internet service providers (ISPs) to treat all Internet traffic equally, meaning they will be prohibited from activities such as charging “prioritization” fees to certain websites demanding faster download speeds, or blocking or degrading certain users’ Internet access.

    Health Reform and Related Health Policy News

    On February 2, 2015, President Barack Obama submitted his fiscal year 2016 budget to the Congress. While congressional Republicans immediately rejected the plan, the budget proposal illustrates the President's priorities for the next fiscal year.

    The budget plans also include a number of savings in health care, particularly in Medicare, that Congress may eventually adopt either to reduce spending or as funding offsets for other priorities. These savings also may become targets for budget saving or offsets in the future.

    Republicans in Congress will respond with their own budget proposal and although they rejected the overall proposal, the savings in health care in the President's plan also may be used by the Republicans

    St. Luke’s Health: Does Improving Patient Care Justify a Merger Under Antitrust Law?

    Healthcare providers frequently consolidate to cut costs and improve patient care. These benefits can result from sharing administrative costs such as billing and electronic recordkeeping, eliminating excess capacity, better coordinating care, and making investments in new facilities and services that may have been unaffordable before the transaction.
