Does compliance with the FDCPA excuse violations of the TCPA?

No, explains the Eleventh Circuit, reversing summary judgment against a consumer who was hounded by State Farm with 327 autodialed calls over a span of six months in an attempt to collect somebody else's debt. The plaintiff told State Farm to stop calling. Even if the FDCPA required him to do so in writing, the TCPA did not, the court reasoned, so judgment for State Farm was inappropriate.
