Industry representatives say they are still assessing the effect of a decision by a federal court in Oklahoma that could prevent the Federal Trade Commission’s do-not-call list from taking effect.
The court ruled that the FTC exceeded its statutory authority in establishing the do-not-call list.
The FTC’s list was challenged by the Direct Marketing Association, New York.
Still unclear at this point, industry representatives say, is what impact the court decision will have on the do-not-call list regulation promulgated by the Federal Communications Commission.
It is the FCC’s regulation that applies to the insurance industry.
