Verizon Gets Tough With Telemarketers

The Washington Post is reporting that Verizon has won two cases against telemarketers who made unsolicited calls to Verizon customers.  Courts in New Jersey and California banned defendants from using autodialers and pre-recorded messages.  Resort Marketing Trends made 200,000 calls before being banned by the New Jersey Superior Court.  Intelligent Alternatives made more than 1,000,000 calls to customers before being stopped by the California Superior Court.  The company invoked the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act and state laws.

More details about these lawsuits and others filed by Verizon are here.
