In Heinrichs v. Wells Fargo Bank, Judge Alsup stayed a TCPA class action based on the Primary Jurisdiction of the FCC and its intention to rule on pending petitions relating to the issues raised by the 7th Circuit’s Soppet decision and the 11th Circuit’s Osorio decision. A copy of Judge Alsup’s Order is here.  The Plaintiff had argued that there were hundreds of petitions filed with the FCC over the past decade and the FCC rarely rules.  Judge Alsup asked for additional briefing on the issue, and Defendant’s Brief outlining the FCC’s rulings and statements from the FCC Chairman can be found here. Eric Troutman of the Firm’s Orange County office briefed and argued the matter, and can be reached at
