Washington, DC—The National Consumers League (NCL) today urged Congress to act swiftly to address the loophole in federal consumer protection law that was created by the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Facebook v. Duguid. The following statement is attributable to NCL Public Policy Manager Sarah Robinson:

“We are disappointed to see the Supreme Court’s decision narrowing the federal robocall ban. It is clear that Congress must act to update our laws to reflect technological changes and protect consumers from these intrusive practices.”
