AARP Reaction Statement on National Do Not Call List Ruling

AARP is very pleased with the Tenth Circuit’s ruling today in upholding the constitutionality of the National Do Not Call Registry. The ruling of the court adheres closely to the AARP amicus brief filed in support of the do not call legislation.

This ruling affirms the long and hard campaign that AARP has waged at the state and national level to put control of the telephone back where it belongs – with the consumer.

AARP’s survey of older telemarketing fraud victims revealed they find it almost impossible to tell the difference between fraudulent and legitimate sales calls, underscoring the importance of allowing them to stop calls in the first place.

"Baby boomers have been called the most savvy and informed consumers of any generation of Americans," said AARP Foundation Litigation senior attorney Deborah Zuckerman. "Yet many of them, like their parents and their children, have been victims of an unrelenting deluge of unwanted telemarketing sales calls."

AARP will continue to advocate for state laws that compliment the federal rule in scope and jurisdiction.
