The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals recently held that the application of Indiana’s telemarking statute to interstate political calls was not preempted by federal law.  You can read more details on the case, Patriotic Veterans v. Indiana, on Covington’s Inside Privacy blog.  One important takeaway from the case is that it is always important to consider state and federal laws when planning a robocalling program, even when it involves interstate political calls.  Covington’s Election & Political Law Group and Communications & Media Group will continue to monitor developments in this area.
