United States District Courts Reach Differing Conclusions on Definition of Automated Telephone Dialing System

The United States District Courts for the District of Massachusetts and the Northern District of Illinois recently reached different conclusions on the definition of an Automated Telephone Dialing System ("ADTS"), reinforcing a split of authority among courts across the country on the definition of such a system under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA), 47 U.S.C. § 227(a)(1).  The TCPA's definition of an ADTS is "Equipment that has the capacity - (A) to store or produce telephone numbers to be called, using a random or sequential number generator, and (B) to dial such numbers."
