In the second landmark decision about the TCPA to come down from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit within the span of five months, the court held that calls placed without the use of a phone system that dialed randomly or sequentially generated phone numbers to reach the recipient (or required human intervention to place the call) do not meet the definition of an “automatic telephone dialing system” and, therefore, are not covered by the TCPA.
