Web-Based Dialing System Does Not Violate TCPA Prohibitions on Use of Automatic Telephone Dialing Systems

The United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois has found that a debt collector's use of a web-based dialing system to contact an individual's cell phone without permission does not violate the Telephone Consumer Protection Act's ("TCPA"), 47 U.S.C. § 227, prohibition on the use of Automatic Telephone Dialing Systems ("ATDS"). The plaintiff in Arora v. Transworld Systems Inc., 2017 WL 3620742 (N.D. Ill. Aug. 23, 2017) alleged that Transworld System Inc.'s ("Transworld") calls to his cell phone without his consent constituted prohibited use of an ATDS pursuant to the TCPA.
