CASELAW

Although she did not dismiss the case, Lynn
made it crystal clear that the case is meritless
unless the plaintiff has proof of a random or
sequential number generator. It's also worth
speculating that she may have wanted to be
the first authority to explicitly rule on the
issue in Texas in hopes that sister courts
across the state follow her lead.
The second noteworthy point about the
Texas court's legal analysis is that it appeared
to be very thorough and independent from
the parties' briefing. The court meticulously
and thoroughly dissected all of the various
possible readings of "using a random or
sequential number generator" in the TCPA's
definition of an ATDS to reach its conclusion.
Finally, the Texas court analyzed the
legislative history and the FCC's pre-2003

orders to enforce its conclusion that
the TCPA was not enacted to prohibit
legitimate business communications or
merely dialing from a list, but rather
devices that generate sequences of numbers
for automatic dialing.
In the accounts receivable management
industry in particular, many businesses are
hoping this opinion creates the tidal wave
we need for positive change.

"The Texas court takes
the more pragmatic
and common-sense
approach, finding-wait
for it-that the statute
actually means what
it says."
