Passing of Justice Ginsburg and the Future of the TCPA?

The passing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will likely bring with it many shifts in the Court on key issues, among which are matters regarding the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), most imminently –  what qualifies as an auto dialer.

After a week off in which they climbed back into the top 10, the Longhorns open Big 12 play on Saturday at Texas Tech (1-0), which surrendered 527 yards passing yards to Houston Baptist in the Red Raiders’ opener.

Ehlinger spread his five scoring passes around to five receivers. He had to. His favorite targets last season, Devin Duvernay and Collin Johnson, are
