September 01, 2017

The U.S. Chamber, joined by the National Association of Manufacturers and the Security Industry Association, filed an amicus brief in the Fourth Circuit, arguing that there was no basis to hold manufacturers vicariously liable under the TCPA for telemarketing calls made by third parties.

Thomas R. McCarthy and Bryan K. Weir of Consovoy McCarthy Park PLLC served as co-counsel for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the U.S. Chamber Litigation Center.
