COURT BLOCKS ‘DO NOT CALL’
A U.S. court in Oklahoma has blocked the national “do not call” list that would allow consumers to stop most unwanted telephone sales calls, the Direct Marketing Association said on Wednesday.
The U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City said the Federal Trade Commission overstepped its authority when it set up the popular anti-telemarketing measure, according to the DMA.
Interesting. And maybe right, too. But this is easy enough to fix: Congress could simply pass the measure, have the president sign it, and allow the use of the existing list. All of which could happen in a matter of days given the popularity of this particular program.
