Supreme Court to anti-telemarketer: Do not call.

The United States Supreme Court has declined to hear the appeal of an anti-telemarketing activist’s case against iHeartMedia/Clear Channel. Mark Leyse had brought suit against then-Clear Channel affiliate Critical Mass Media over automated telemarketing calls, but the US District Court for the Southern District of New York had dismissed the case because the FCC has specifically exempted research firms in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Leyse then lost an appeal, another suit and another district, and an appeal of that ruling.
